    Nowhere to Go - Propaganda


    Nowhere To Go - Prelude/Propaganda, Mixed Media/cutout canvas, 81" x 70';1993

    Thinking about the prelude to the war. I wanted to incorporate the climate of ethnic hatred (taken from a propaganda leaflet), as seen by the crude caricature of a hooknosed Jew embracing a business man while picking his pocket. I contrast the innocence of children balancing on a floating log in the dark, starry sky with the vast cataclysm looming ahead.
