Artist's / designer's statements

This book is intended to question the notion how successful can we be in turning off our fears and anxieties that face us when they seem to be constantly there.

This work is a commentary on the way that the negative forces plaguing our country are all pervasive. Even when we're trying to relax, even in the comfort of our own homes we are aware of the dangers and the risks and the need. The question remains, how do we fix it? How do we bring order and harmony and beauty to the fore? How do we move past the corruption, the violence, the anger, the inequality, the fear? How do we come out from behind our burglar bars, our locked cars and bridge the divide?
