Democracy Devoured

American ideals are in tatters, with the rich living in policed penthouses and the poor against a backdrop of drought, disease, and poisoned water. Donald Trump was elected on a post-fact wave of anger to sort it all out, but he only aims to divide and profit from the scrap heap that Earth is fast becoming. His simplistic, violent rhetoric originates in his self-perception as a king. He believes that corporate might is an absolute right—no matter the destructive impact corporations have on the planet and its people. Will such an outrageous, belligerent soul ever compromise or embrace cooperation? Because he likely won’t, resistance is required. As Walt Whitman, the great American poet of democracy, wrote: Unscrew the locks from the doors!/ Unscrew the doors themselves from the jambs!/Whoever degrades another degrades me.

Commissioned by the Palestine Gallery in London in 2008, to create a work depicting Palestinian life and culture from 1900 to present day. We chose to print and paint on a mix of canvas fragments and paper which we assembled as one canvas 18metres long by 2 to 4metres deep.

The Nakba 60 commissioned a group of artists to create a series of billboards to highlight the destruction of the state of Palestine at the moment Israel was created. It ran the billboards as Israel had their 60th anniversary celebrations in London.
