Post #1283 – Never a Blind Eye Turn

Never A Blind Eye Turn is a piece of cut paper collage art using images found in vintage magazines and other ephemera that are then dry adhered to paper with a gel medium.  The original image is roughly 17.5 inches wide by 14.5 inches tall (not including matte and frame) and was completed in June 2018. This piece was created after hearing an audio recording of frightened children who were forcefully separated from their parents and taken to interim camps at  the United States / Mexico border. I will be honest in stating that, as a parent myself, I could not make it through the entire audio.  It was too heartbreaking. This is a disgraceful policy that must be stopped.
