I rarely make political statements with my art, but given the current climate I decided to give it a go with my friend's art show about climate change. Much of today's political landscape is driven by fear-fear of the unknown, fear of physical and personal attacks. With so many sexual harrassment trials coming to light, I thought this Margaret Atwood quote was very fitting:
"Men are afraid that women will laugh at them. Women are afraid that men will kill them."
This piece was also an update to the painting Running I did 12 years ago, a sort of where are they now with the same characters.
