Death of Canonochet

Original: charcoal on paper 51″ x 47″

Giclee print: 17.25″ x 12.75

A satirical look at modern retirement and the fruits of the conquest of America. When Cananochet, the warrior chief of King Philip’s War (1676), was captured by militiamen and taken to be hung at Stonington, Connecticut, he said on the gallows that he was happy that he was dying so he would never have a soft heart. Ironically, in the 20th century the machine of war is still present in that area in the form of the U.S. submarine base in neighboring New London, CT. Stonington, Connecticut is an affluent Oceanside resort town on Long Island Sound.
