Interesting play with the frame. Based on a great painting by Artemisia Gentileschi. The piece was part of a show I had at Skylight Books.  The show was called Urban Spaces.

    I very much like your “Susanna and the Elders” – I take it to be a visual ‘argument’ that modern-day men should stop harassing younger women. I was a writing teacher for 38 yrs. and also have written lots of literary and art criticism about the purposes and strategies of literature and art. Best Regards!

    • Dave – thanks for your comment. It does say some of what you mention about harassment – which has apparently been an issue for the more than 2000 years that the Susanna story has been around. It’s also a tribute to the art of Artemisia Gentileschi. Putting it on the street in my neighborhood, Koreatown, sort of says that big heroic stories play out in ordinary places.

      I am curious: how you found this piece? It’s sort of buried here, and I didn’t think a lot of folks ever notice it.
