The lighthouse art cubist rendition, L’ Art Degenere d’phare of Crooked River Lighthouse challenges traditional perception of lighthouses.
The painting, honors the Cubists artists whose works were banned by the Nazis of World War II and displayed in the Degenerate Art Exhibit. The works of art were formerly exhibited in German Museums.
The painting, L’ Art Degenere, of the Crooked River Lighthouse weaves together the history of its neighbor, Camp Johnston. I was moved by the juxtaposition of the lighthouse and Camp Johnston. One edifice built to save lives and the other to end them. The painting honors the Cubist artists whose works were banned by the Nazis of World War II. It also pays homage to the soldiers who fought for their freedom.
