Description

Journal #93 (Living A New Normal)
Collage
15 x 20" MATTED
This journal page was completed one month after the attacks of 9/11. In it, Lowry uses 1950's advertising images of children in contrast to the horrors of that current moment. A boy and a girl reading is contrasted with four figures in hazmat suits on the left, and on the right a child's "toy" called a potato gun that shoots harmless potato pellets, collaged with renderings of explosions, and a clipped headline that reads "How Scared Should You Be?" Signed and dated below collage on mat.
