Personal Quote: Nothing's easy

This video shows the creation of two life size paintings based on TSA airport security Advanced Information Technology (AIT) body scans.  The paintings encourage dialogue of the AIT body scans currently being proposed for all US airports.  They also function as art that reflects the culture and times in which we live.  The male and female figures can be seen as an allegory of Adam and Eve, provoking the analogy between modesty and shame, security and invasion of privacy.

The paintings will be included in the exhibition Art & Democracy V, opening on May 24th at the Building Bridges Art Foundation gallery in Bergamot Station, Santa Monica, CA. Art & Democracy V is the fifth art exhibition with the theme of art and democracy; this year it is returning to Greater Los Angeles after a three-month run in New York City.

Organized by the Visual Artists Guild and curated by Diana Wong, the show focuses on work that address issues concerning social justice, immigrant rights, freedom, global climate change, democratic struggles and civil liberties.
