Art 319 P2 16

The images I have selected for my exhibition give a view of the human condition during times of political and social unrest. Humankind expresses their dissatisfaction with circumstance and treatment in various ways. I feel that these images articulate the emotions that go along with unrest.

The simplicity of this piece makes a very clear statement that it is about protest. It is an appropriate piece to open the exhibition.
The white stakes are reminiscent of the punji sticks that were used during the Viet Nam War. The images of the uniformed men give the impression of watching a riot.
The individuals that are tied and naked are nearly faceless in this image. The individual in the foreground wields a rifle to keep the captives in control. So frequently during times of political or social protest this is the fate of the protestors.
This image shows an extreme fate for some protestors. The intimidation that these headless figures are meant to show is quite startling. Most people are not willing to part with their heads in order to make a political statement.
The nearly faceless figures appear to be in some type of cage or cell. Their fate is yet to be seen. During times of protest, many individuals find themselves imprisoned, with little or no hope of eventual release.
These headless figures relay the depersonalization that oftentimes lead to political or social protest.
The Foreign Worker creates a great deal of unrest in many countries. The resident workers frequently become unhappy and disillusioned because the foreign worker gets a job that might otherwise be filled by a resident. This disillusionment can lead to political and social protests.
The two hands are held up as if to protect their owner from what appears to be a spray of bullets. Bullets are often used in an effort to control political and social protests.
Target-Man has been riddled with bullet holes. Riot police use targets of this sort to prepare for dealing with protestors.
Anarchy often follows protests. This image gives a visualization of what anarchy means.
The translation of this title is "Self Portrait of frustrated vocations". Frequently it is frustrations that cause political and social protests.
"Introduction to Hope" is the translation of this title. Hope is what the individual feels when their voice is heard in a protest.
Just the mention of Viet Nam created protests throughout the world for many years.
Finally, revolution becomes the result when protests are not heard or acted upon.
