The Freedom Series Show is UP!

The Freedom Series is my artistic response to governmental regimes that use violence and oppression against their own men, women and children.

In these three pieces, “The Price of Freedom” (Left), “Embracing Freedom” (Top Right), and “Freedom For The Children” (Bottom Right) I am trying to convey the despair of these people, who are seeking the basic freedoms that I take for granted.

Sometimes there are those who pay a great price to purchase a freedom that they will never be able to enjoy, but maybe, if we don’t ignore it,  their sacrifice will change the world for the ones following behind.

In trying to convey the violence of these moments, I asked my friend Ethan Crane, to shoot holes in the artwork. He brought several different types of firearms to an open field and proceeded to execute the images. I had worked for hours creating these pieces and was very conflicted about the idea of destroying them. The experience was surreal and I literally went to bed that night with a stomach ache, how much guilt the oppressors must carry for destroying their own people.
