Here in an image from the documentary, Secunda works in his studio in Boulder, CO. This painting is the piece on the shooting of Rev. Clementa C. Pinckney which I wrote about in a previous post. The original piece was commissioned by C. Edward Wall, the co-founder and curator of the Arthur Secunda Museum. Originally Secunda was going to create a work based on the Watts Riots however he has decided to create a work on a contemporary subject. When I asked him how he decided on the subject of Rev. Clementa C. Pinckney , he replied, "Because it angered and saddened me." Much of Secunda's artwork deals with social and racial issues. Some of it can be seen in LACMA's permeant collection.
