Description

    Roberto Clemente Painting. His story is a study in character and drive and the ascendancy of man to myth. It provides a unique glimpse into the America of his time, the game known as "America's Pastime," and the heroism that transcends both. The 2' x 2' painting on wooden panel, has 2, 8" x10" metal sheets which are stacked, one with the image of the Pirate star in mid stride. Clemente said "Anytime you have an opportunity to make a difference in this world and you don't do it, you are wasting your time on earth". The reflective pieces of metal bring the viewers image into the work asking them that very question. Original mixed media work from artist Grant Smith.
