Phools Parade 2011: Gnome of Hope

Year: 2011

For the Second Annual Phools Parade in New Paltz, NY, my work was comprised of 20 paintings on sticks for people to parade around with.  My idea was that the apocalypse had happened and that some people were vying for the “end is near” and others were for “hope”.  Here we have Jack Hedley as the Gnome of Hope.  Yes, the Gnome has once again resurfaced in another project, but what better way to represent Hope with the adorableness of a two year old.
