“Some of my Sisters”, ISIS and art

Art and politics works…sometimes. Most of the time, the art should be on the poster of the cause, and left there. But, not always.

I am of the mindset that political and social consciousness should be an underlying part, but hitting someone over the head with it…not my game.

I read an article yesterday in the Rolling Stone: http://www.rollingstone.com/culture/features/teenage-jihad-inside-the-world-of-american-kids-seduced-by-isis-20150325 This is incredibly chilling and scary.

It has obviously been brewing in my brain, because this was created today:

I don’t need to swear, wave a tampon in your face, ask you to eat me, or whatever.

I need to make you think, and hard, about what ISIS is doing to “Some of my Sisters”. And, yours.

    • Thanks Anne! Keep an eye out-in the next two days I will post about your show here as well as the show at Hurd, the new show at the Rochester PL (both the RMFA and what’s downstairs), and a full shoot of the Timeless show.
