A Declaration - Original

24" x 30" (60.96cm x 76.20cm)

acrylic, gel medium

This piece is part of my Soap Box Series; a series dedicated to my opinions about hot button topics. "A Declaration" is my interpretation of the current state of our government, the way things appear rather than how they are supposed to be. In the right light the color combination causes distortion of vision to bring attention to the illusion of "government by the people and for the people."  The text contains no punctuation and no spaces to emphasize the struggle to see policy as it is rather than how it is presented to us. The text overlaying Liberty's silhouette reads: WE HOLD THESE TRUTHS TO BE PAINFULLY SELF-EVIDENT THAT ALL POWERFUL WEALTHY CONSERVATIVE WHITE MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL THAT THEY ARE ENDOWED BY THEIR CHRISTIAN GOD WITH CERTAIN UNALIENABLE RIGHT-WING RIGHTS THAT AMONG THESE ARE LIVING AN EXCESSIVE LIFE WITH NO REGARD FOR THE MANY THE LIBERTY TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THEIR POSITION AND POWER AND THE PURSUIT OF SELF-SERVING HAPPINESS TO SECURE THESE RIGHTS GOVERNMENTS ARE BOUGHT.
