Kowtow To The High-Brow

acrylic on canvas
120 x 150 cm (47.25 x 59 in)

Artist’s Comments: I had to look up the word “kowtow” to double check its meaning. It was one of those words that one has in the back closet somewhere. As I worked on this I began to see artists acting in a servile manner to those who had obtained positions of potential influence. Perhaps an Ellsworth Toohey from The Fountainhead.  (Maybe my Ayn Rand reference is making me think I am some sort of high-brow.)
