portrait of a man pleasureing himself
I made this image shortly after we invaded Iraq. It is not a comment on that particular event, so much as it is on our apparent ease at using our destructive capabilities. Also, at how much the common man wants to use those capabilities on others. I know our leaders say we have not used our military might loosely, I guess I do not see the balance being weighed, the gravity of the results being carefully looked at. I can only imagine if they were, there would be alot less wars happening right now. Maybe that is too idealistic?
The Rhode Island based band, "Alec K. redfearn and the eyesores" used this image for the cover of their album, "Every man for himself and God against all"
