This work is an eclectic landscape of images symbolizing a whole: Our worlds decline and disregard for life. We start with the background, “We The People” printed out on a quasi constitution that that has been burnt, torn (in the shape of a five pointed star) and slashed with a razor blade. It is bleeding, has the blood of the innocent spattered on it and has a dried bloody hand-print symbolizing that this isn’t something new. Peering through some of the burnt holes are eyes of leaders and other authorities watching us and hiding behind the constitution to do so. The Fence symbolizes the American dream of family: The husband and wife, two point five children, a cat and dog in a house with a white picket fence. But the fence isn’t perfect, one slat represents a damaged family while another one was removed because it didn’t conform to what society says a “Family” is. In front of the fence is the blood that has been spilled by our leaders for the freedoms they say are being jeopardized. The basket with the shipping label is the hand basket that the world is going to hell in. But in the upper left corner behind the burnt constitution is the sun rising on a new day and the opportunities that the promise of a new day brings.
