Bill and Gabor 1, 2012, Acrylic and graphite on unprimed canvas, 60 x 48 inches
Gabor, 2012, acrylic on sized linen

The first one is the “real” work.  It’s currently in my show at Ille Arts.  It’s actually a portrait of De Kooning but looks more like Warhol and somewhat like my dad.  That’s all ok to me. Gabor is my dad’s name.  I made this show immediately following his death in late April.  The small painting below is on sized linen.  It’s a portrait of dad that I began after he died, while I was finding the subject of the new body of work.  That’s as far as I was able to get on it and I feel like it captures him quite well somehow.  So they are both portraits of my dad.  -Liz Markus, 2012
