24x24, 2020. $685. Mixed Media Painting, "Play Nice" was created with the current political climate in mind. How man-children treat girls and women at work and play. The image of school girls ( reproduced from a vintage school photo) placed within Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Time magazine portrait is a statement about how things from the early 20th century to the present has not changed for females. The vintage puzzle that makes up the male figure is about boys and their toys. How they revert back to childish games when dealing with women. The cut words-definitions ( Man, Pussy, Equality, Assault) were cut from a 1925 dictionary- to imply the conversation taking place in society and the courts.
