Death of Sympathy: Mindful (2014)

Monotype, sumi ink, collage on paper
22" x 15"

The horrific human catastrophes in the summer of 2014 fueled this work: the collapse of compassion in the Gaza/Israeli war; the unspeakable brutality of ISIS as it slaughtered innocents in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan; the horrors of Ebola as it spread through West Africa; and the beheadings.
