"Paintings and drawings that channel a bewildered rage at the distribution of political power. Malevolent groups of jackals, bears, and wolves dressed in business suits are gathered around tables modelled on Leonardo's "Last Supper." A pair of more human conspirators have devil-red skin." — The New Yorker

Says Edith Isaac-Rose "For a very long time, I've been aware of images that are almost the same the world over: men in suits, (whether allies, competitors or political enemies), dress and gesture in similar ways — they carry brief-cases, shake hands, wave and salute, acting out their parts in the theater of power. These leaders often violate the earth and the people who live on it. These paintings address that violation."
