The Blood Feast of Miers and Bush
Why do I do these things to pictures of some political figures? Because I feel powerless. Calling it "art therapy" is only half joking. When people feel they no longer have any control over the government, they find ways to compensate. My compensation is poking fun at these powerful people who look normal on the outside but are monstrous in their actions. By extension, I believe there must be monsters within. I want to mark their monstrousness on the outside where it can be seen.
I'm not really much of a visual artist but by manipulating these photos I'm trying to create a vision of what I see in their actions. Like the old maps, I'm trying to mark these folks with a legend reading "Here be Monsters."
