Starting out as a young Romantic of the Hugo group, he is at first filled with the spirit of protest against the old standards.

T.: II Samuel 19:1–8] Michal David’s wife; castigates him for boyish exulting. [O. That is the basic act of oppression that still waits to be undone, though the undoing might well produce the most cataclysmic reinterpretation of the sexual roles and of 'sexual normalcy' in all human history.

His works make plain the hidden and not-so-hidden agendas of those—from Cartier to David Koch—who support art in the service of industry; they expose such inconvenient social and economic truths as the real estate holdings of Manhattan slumlords, and the attempts to whitewash support for the Nazi regime, apartheid, or the war on terror through museum donations.
