Gonzo, Zoom Call
6x6 Encaustic on panel, black floater frame.
Gonzo is like that guy in high school who is remarkably unremarkable, other than his odd attraction to chickens. He's also the guy who comes up with the worst talent show skits, and still, unironically, calls himself "The Great". Gonzo takes weird to new levels.
About my Muppet Series of paintings
The holidays are all about spending time with family. One thing we used to do as a family, was watch "The Muppet Show". I added the Zoom call icons at the bottom of each painting, since, for many people in 2020, Zoom calls have replaced our in-person family time.
These encaustic paintings of Muppets are reminders of family gatherings in the time of COVID.
Of course, in addition to families, many companies are using Zoom this year to hold meetings. And what would make every business meeting better? Having a Muppet Zoom-bomb your video call.
