TRICKSTER'S LAUGH 1994
acrylic on paper
28" x 40"
"The Trickster's Laugh is the result of the inner struggle of my rational smart artist ego trying to make a profound statement on 'Indian Humor', then paralyzing itself in the analysis. After many attempts, I finally threw up my hands, 'Damn it, I give up!'"
