Eternal Fires, from the series, ‘Conscious Oil’

Statement:

“This set of prints spans 20 years with their roots in my involvement with direct action against the first Gulf War. They come from practical political action intertwined with the practical work of cutting and scratching and inking of surfaces. Printmaking has always been the art form that belongs to political movements: images that need to communicate strong thoughts and feelings; images that can be reproduced quickly and easily; images that can assert again and again that we think through pictures when we are reaching for humanity and poetry. Controlling the printing press is like controlling the megaphone.”
