This piece of original artwork comes stretched and framed on a cradled wood box.
"On this piece I really wanted to explore color & texture and shy away a bit from formal constraints. What I’m really excited about is that the print quality really shows these attributes well. When I first saw the proof, I was completely blown away. This piece is part of a series I started working on in July of 2012. I spent a lot of time looking at war photos on the internet. After awhile, I became interested in this cycle of self destruction that we, as human beings, perpetuate. It kind of made me think of that scene in Stanley Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey” where the ape discovers that the bone could be used as a weapon. It’s as if as soon as we created tools we started harming each other and, ultimately, ourselves. I just began to wonder if it is something that is part & parcel to being human…part of who we are and it cannot be undone." - John Wentz
