Hubris -- the quote

Hubris, 2008, acrylic on board, 14" x 11".

Here is the quote that inspired the painting, Hubris:

"We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you're studying that reality – judiciously, as you will – we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that's how things will sort out. We're history's actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do."
