A little over a year ago I began a series of works regarding the nature of the now almost constant forms of surveillance we are under in our daily lives. Whether it's Social Media, and other online venues or ever-present cameras around us we have essentially given up our privacy. What does that mean? Does it matter? The work below is one of three in the series thus far.
"Ubiquitous Surveillance 2"
The above piece will be featured in the "ArtsIlliana gallery in Terre Haute, Indiana beginning August 2, 2019-October 18, 2019. The show is entitled "Red". Below is the Gallery statement about the show.
"Is RED just a color? If it is, then how many variations of RED are there? Throughout history humans have had a love/hate relationship with RED, e.g. in the 20th century we had RED countries and in the 21st century we have RED states. Is RED more than just a color?" - nArtsIlliana

In an article in Huffington Post entitled "The Resurrection Of Boris Lurie And The NO!art Movement" Lisa Paul Streitfeld makes a clear case for the importance Lurie's No!Art movement.
"Lurie’s art, misunderstood and condemned (when it wasn’t utterly neglected), carries a single-minded integrity of purpose missing from art today — negation screaming out against the inauthenticity of the marketplace and the art world system that supports it."
"Lurie was a concentration camp survivor whose art is a response to the the loss of his mother, his sister, and childhood sweetheart in the face of human cruelty and indifference."
