This series uses Philip Guston's later paintings,specifically his pallette to create forms and groupings about the trouble we find ourselves in when we allow populism to succeed. The period Guston created his Nixon series in and the Watergate crisis resonates with todays political climate and the workings of the current US administration. Using media traditionally associated with the domestic - textiles and ceramics - the commentary is not literal or loud. The work acts as an interloper between the internal domestic world and the external one of world politics.
