Gun in America
To show you how much I care, in 1972, that is 40 years ago, I created a small work of art concerning "The gun in America". This work was created with two Time Magazine's front cover collages, cast in transparent resin. One of the two torn covers is on Gun in America and the other of the famous Rowan and Martin comedy team. This was to symbolically show that the entertainment, social and political events distractions, can make us forget the tragedies related to the misuse of guns.
I tore parts of each covers to show that the problems of guns should not be set aside by entertainment and distractions of our society.
If it was a problem then, it shows that it is an ongoing and persistent problem that gets worst by the years.
I want to present this humble and disturbing work so that the Newtown and other tragic events are not ever forgotten.
In my opinion, less guns and control of mass murder weapons could be part of the solution and this, without impeding the right to have responsible use of guns!!!
