My Vision of Peace
The basis for peace is first and foremost how a society embraces its children. In the book and movie, the Hunger Games, children of lesser districts are sacrificed to fight to the death for the entertainment of the Capital. Strangely enough we see similar parallels in the developing world as children are inducted as children soliders or sex slaves. We need to address this issue by demanding respect for children first and foremost.


Medium
This work is started initially with imagery from defunct companies, popular political posters and companies representing worldwide happiness. In the next layer is an abstract painting. The final layer encompasses the figure of Effie in the Hunger Games and the hand of Katniss Everdeen as she volunteers to save her sister in the Hunger Games.

First of all, I love this piece! Second, I hate what it depicts and you are absolutely right...children must be respected. And...on a totally random topic, we'll have a booth out at the worldOne Festival in El Cerrito on July 4th. One of the most amazing events I've ever been to. Great place to spend the 4th :-)

Look forward to seeing you soon!
