'RED of THE RIGHT', 2009 - Sam Smith: Considering the litany of current issues that lie in the arena of the survival of humanity and the very earth upon which we live: a world-wide breakdown of the economic system, threats of nuclear exchange and the piracy that threaten a widening of the "war on terrorism", it is the most audacious cartoon created, by millions and their political arm in Washington DC that surround such issues as the human rite of 'same sex marriage'. Maybe while argument is taking place in DC over such issues: the dollar will be devalued to .10 cents, a tipping point of the Earths' destruction will occur, or perhaps America will be blasted into oblivion, what a thoughtless disregard of the 'people' pulling the strings of power!, a matter of a great distortion of priorities. This graphic was originally created as a way through these frustrations, as stickers posted in public places - mostly the East Village of N.Y.C.

A native of Baltimore, MD, N.Y.C. has been my home for more than half my life. Four plus decades my artistic acts have passed through the glass eye of fine-arts photography. Most recent series of works are from the 'EquivalencE' series, an outgrowth of 'Synergi3s of Confluence' (SynCon), a continuing series. The central subject-matter are that shared space humanity & Nature inhabit. Such juxtapositions will oft result in foretelling ways, at times they will speak to formalities of esthetics, and others a more humorous narrative is close at-hand, all-the-while the relationship between Nature/humanity is context. Visual results are never passive, as these relationships are manifest within an atmosphere of correspondence. While the SynCon works rely on: a process of repurposing the original image via: duplication, selective cropping, and seamless reuniting along a common edge, whereas the EquivalencE works rely on the singular original image. Aspirations are two-fold: an engaging work of fine-art, and a redefining of the relationship between humanity & Nature to one of partnership.

||Magda: Again you have hit the nail on the head, for the purpose of this work is that our legislators are Americas' biggest joke of all. While they are appropriating BILLIONS, possibly TRILLIONS of $'s, of your tax monies to bail out banks and the rest of the corporate world and arguing over such is...
