The series of paintings Veterans conveys rarely told personal stories of American men and women from the U.S. Military. The paintings, interviews conducted by the artist, and the accompanying stories by Sophie Rand convey the pressing need for a civilian awareness of the realities and experiences of veterans from current and past generations. The ten paintings selected for this exhibition focus primarily on Bronx residents, including portraits of Leroy Archible and Carmen Rodriguez, who were instrumental in introducing Talbot to veterans in the Bronx.
