The Messenger



acrylic on canvas – 16X40X1.5 inches

As the justice system uses the press to spin modern-day mythology, the Messenger reveals that truth lies somewhere between fact and fiction. Brandishing an unloaded gun in the presence of the president, Lynette Fromme was painted by Time Magazine as “The Girl Who Almost Killed Ford.” “It Didn’t Go Off” according to Newsweek. When the news media would have us believe in invisible magic bullets, the truth gets lost in translation.
