"Losers Chorus"
acrylic and collage elements on paper, 8 panels, 105" X 156"
each panel, 51" X 50", 1999

This series was originally conceived as a large book to be spread out across a wall. At the risk of plunging the painting into illustration I wanted to make the characters more real by providing each with their own story. Those stories are contained in a book - called "Losers Chorus Book" - that accompanied the group of paintings. The title for this group of paintings was inspired by the title of an album from 1970 by the jazz artist Archie Shepp called "For Losers.".
