"This portrait debuted in spring of 2013 at Rox Gallery alongside works by Andy Warhol, Peter Beard, and Ryan McGinley in a show called 'ROCK$.' The show dealt with our obsession with acquiring material objects and their perceived significance within society. Given the nature and materials of my work, it was a perfect marriage of concept and aesthetic. This was my first exhibited painting in many years, and it sold within a week, so it marked a very special re-emergence for me."
