(Obama) Mutts Like Me

American artist Matthew Beall writes in from Ulm, Germany: “… the Obama portraits reflect the iconic status that we (Americans) so very much love to create in America. The colored lips and eyebrows can be thought of as a mask, if you will, in which many minorities, especially blacks, have had to wear throughout history. The title, of course, is what he called himself in a speech made in Nov. 2008 after he won the election. The background colors are meant to reflect this idea, the idea of a mixed identity and the question of ‘Do I fit in?'”
