FIRE OF FEAR
In the fall of 2016 during the height of the U.S. presidential campaign there was a palpable sense of fear, which was enflamed by political rhetoric, demonizing of immigrants, & denigration of women. I was taking a printmaking class at the University of MN at the time & felt the fear & intensity of emotions rising among the students & my friends & family. My international colleagues & family asked me what is going on in America(!!!). This piece was part of a series I did in response to that time & it is still sadly even more relevant now.
Fear spreads like wildfire damaging everything in its wake. We The People must stop it by our concerted resistance, actions & assertive, respectful, inclusive conversations,Water the Fire of Fear.
