After the people-less American Interiors series, I let the "figure" play a more substantial, hotter role in a new batch of large paintings. I presented a disparate group of subjects, mainly outside the home. In these paintings the figures were more specific, sometimes with political overtones, and even included an occasional landscape, or maybe an arrogant nude in a harsh environment. It was a way to explore and paint subjects I had never attempted before.

Altogether the pieces were somewhat like a group exhibition, but stylistically the surfaces are all consistently rendered with intense colors and with a wide value range. However, each piece seems to exist without a visual or narrative connection. The notion here was that the Disparity of the series mimics real life in its refusal to conclude, or categorize.
