Conflict of Interest
#WarStudies #Conflict #MilitaryHistory
The paintings and drawings within the Conflict of Interest series look at the elements and symbols of war. What we build reflects our nature and our desires. It reflects our desire for positions of power, retribution, strength, security, and order. These works are an attempt to awaken curiosity, to enable critical thinking, and to spark dialogue about the past, the present, and our future.
