Take Me Homs

I usually stick with the ruins or heights of a future dystopia as the setting for my art. I feel it connects me with my diverse family’s close relationship with World War II, from the bombing of Hiroshima to the right to survive beyond barbed wire on both sides of the Atlantic. It is a privilege that I can look at these events from a distance. The truth is that the brutality of war has never left us.

This is happening right now in Syria. It hurts to realize that, for most of the world, it is the brief glimpses of peace, not the Wars, that are remembered with such austere reverence and nostalgia.

What are we fighting for?

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
