‎”Salvation Road” (2009): The large-scale collages of Netherland’s Joram Roukes are at once disturbing and familiar, ghastly figures that challenge proportions. They are meticulously composed and yet the paint drips or smudges freely. Roukes’ succinct artist statement alludes to moral dilemmas in Western society, and this elaborate piece is suggestive of America’s economic and cultural influences – a puzzle to decode.
