"The Supreme Court Case Of The Oprah Winfrey Bra"by Taco Werewolf
18"x24" acrylic painting on Masonite
Oprah Winfrey endorsed Barack Obama early on and some people say thather power, money and influence is what catapulted his campaign. I don'tknow if I believe that but it is interesting that they both seem to lieheavily on the letter "O" in their marketing. I wanted to make apainting to acknowledge the Oprah Winfrey element of "Obamamania" but Ialso wanted to acknowledge my love for NFL football. Since Barack andOprah both have Chicago roots, I included the Chicago Bears startingquarterback, Rex Grossman, in this visual record because the facts ofhis embattled career fit well into my underwear mythology.
Rex Grossman has shown flashes of brilliance but hasalso shown himself to be injury-plagued and prone to throwing multipleinterceptions in any given game. In 2006, the first year when he wasable to start the entire season, he helped the Bears get to the SuperBowl where he botched snaps, fumbled, and helped to give Peyton Manningand the Colts a championship. The following 2007 season was not kind toGrossman. The Bears failed to match their 2006 success and midwaythrough the season, Grossman was benched in favor of Brian Griese.Toward the end of the year, Grossman was given yet another chance andhe once again was injured. But despite cries from fans to get rid ofhim, Grossman was given a one-year contract to once again prove himselfin 2008. Here he stands in his underwear, holding a football as hebares (bears?) his soul to the world, playing on the fieldmetaphorically half-naked, the entire nation aware of his faults andtendency to make bad judgments. Can Rex finally live up to hispotential? Do you have "hope" for Rex and his ability to have a goodyear in 2008? I personally feel that any supporter of Barack Obamashould also be a fan of Rex Grossman, especially since everyone knowsObama is a big Bears fan.
At the bottom of the painting Oprah Winfrey singsJosephine Baker's hit song, "Don't Touch My Tomatoes" as Supreme CourtJustices John Roberts and Antonin Scalia do just that, much in the wayother Justices ignored the cries of old ladies screaming, begging,"Please Don't Touch My House" when it came to eminent domain laws whichwere passed during the Bush administration that allowed the governmentto take people's houses "for the greater public good".
