Angry White Men

This exhibit of paintings by David Haughton at the Visual Space gallery consisted of portraits of criminals and disturbing collages of white supremacists, based on photos on the internet. Haughton is appalled by their behaviour and hoped that presenting their images could be a chance to role play our opposition to them. Haughton said he hoped they would be ashamed of their actions, but the images themselves seemed like fairly straightforward depictions, so conceivably the subjects might actually be pleased to see themselves so depicted. It seemed well intentioned but misguided. I don’t know if my cartoon is any better.
