This painting evoked the visual and ephemeral nature of political maps. Of course, I had to include the red and blue, a few hanging chads, and the chaotic feel of an election in real time on the news.
According to Yahoo Answers;
A political landscape, in very basic terms, is the current state of politics in a particular region. This includes the style of governance, policy direction, relationship between parties, media reportage and analysis and general tone and manner of the electorate. It's a 'picture' of the political situation.
