The work for this series is based on the fact it is easy to google search beheadings. Check out my work on July 7 during the Philadelphia First Friday, open studio tour.
All are welcome from 6 pm - 8 pm at 245 Cherry St. Philadelphia , PA 19106.
When you type this into google you will find numerous ISIS beheadings before you reach medieval art depictions. I chose to do this series as a comment that in Australia the media only follows terrorism but fails to highlight the damaging effects of how many beheadings are going on around the world. There is a disconnect between photography of an actual beheading and the watercolours I created which engage a viewer better than the shock value of coming to terms with a real image. The series is and only will be a 12 part as the beheadings crept into my psyche and dreams. The works are 8cm by 8 cm and on May 27th were exhibited in Hopewell New Jersey.
