ABOUT THE ART
"This 'Eyes Open' screen print is the follow-up to the 'Wake Up' letterpress I released over the summer. I think as the dust settles from the election and we move into the holiday season, it is important to look to the future with our eyes open to our shared humanity.
The image is an urge for us all to be alert, conscious, and analytical. Disinformation, division, and apathy have led to the weakening of pillars of our democracy, an ineffective response to Covid-19, and a lack of meaningful action on environmental destruction and climate change.
We accomplish amazing things when we unite and focus on constructive goals, planting seeds, and nurturing them together until they bloom. There are many crucial things going on that demand us to live with our eyes and minds open that this print applies to, but I’ve chosen to donate proceeds to the NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council) to support their work toward legislation that protects the environment for all of our futures. Thanks for caring!"
