Laurie Hoen, The Temptation of Privilege, 2019, 45” x 30”, Oil on Panel

Where does privilege come from? Am I aware of it when I have it? Am I aware of those who don’t? Does my silent acceptance of this advantage come with strings attached?  In many cultures the pheasant is considered a symbol of royalty.  In this setting, they are all considering the potential and risk of picking up a key, representative of opportunity. It’s the female bird who seems to have to step over more obstacles to reach the key.
