POTUS

2016, Pencil on paper,11’17,

A Palimpsest is something that is reused or altered but still bearing visible traces of its earlier form. For the past two terms President Barack Obama has led our country to greatness. He has achieved many great things over the past eight years and to think that all of his hard work will be erased is worrisome. In my palimpsest project I am portraying two images of Obama in which one is erased. The concept of the images being side by side is to convey the idea that Obama is now leaving his presidency with the possibility of these two candidates, in my opinion who are unfit and incapable of being our next President. The erased image has the same concept of the idea that one of these candidates could erase all of the accomplishments that Obama has achieved.
