Oil on Primed Masonite
9.5" x 6.875"
Framed in an artist-made pine wood frame (11.5" x 14.25")
Tureky Boy is an original oil painting depicting an anthropomorphic character created by the artist. The painting employs humor to play with the history of the artist's upbringing on a small Wisconsin hobby farm. Farming wasn't a primary characteristic of the artist's life at the time, but was a daily commitment for his family. Reflecting on the formative experiences at his family's farm home has provided ongoing material to challenge embedded stereotypes of his conflicted relationship to a Latino or Chicano heritage while living in the midwest of the United States.
Turkey Boy is sealed with one layer of gloss varnish and is ready to hang with a wire. The painting ships wrapped in plastic and bubble wrap within a cardboard box.
