A new exhibit titled “Bollards,” a solo exhibit by Daniel Friedman, opened January 8 at Five15Arts @ Chartreuse at 1301 NW Grand Ave. in Phoenix.
Trump’s border wall “is a taxpayer-subsidized monument to xenophobia and ignorance. The flimsy justifications for the ineffective wall, based on racism, cruelty and an idiotic campaign promise,” inspired the series of Friedman’s eleven Bollards paintings.
Each painting is acrylic on a 30-inch by 60-inch wood panel, and when all eleven paintings are displayed, the installation will be thirty feet wide.
A companion series, Color Barrier, alters the American flag by underlaying the traditional colors with colors that symbolize the varied groups of people marginalized by bigotry, racism and prejudice in the United States.
