Roger Brown- Kissin' Cousins
This painting was created by Chicago Imagist Roger Brown in 1990 after he found out that he was a distant cousin to Elvis. Roger Brown made a number of paintings using the format of circus freak-show banners from his time and adapting it to address other issues. This piece utilizes the absurdity of the circus banners with a sense of humor.
