Who Are You?
48″ x 48″ (SOLD)
A companion piece to “Plea Bargain”, this large canvas also explores the prisoner’s feelings as he is examined by lawyers and judges in the plea bargaining session that led to a life sentence, of which he has already completed 27 years. Having no art training before being incarcerated at 22, Drenth has used this time to steep himself in studies of art, music, law, and religion. He has said that he loves many of the modern artists, but feels most kinship with Van Gogh, who led a similarly anguished life.
