Flowers of Life for Central America
24 1/2 x 18''
The title of this work refers to a series of cultural events organized in 1984 by the grassroots coalition, Artists Call. Many well known artists participated in programming across art galleries, college libraries, churches, and recreational centers in Southern California to protest the United States interference in Central American affairs. This political poster, which serves as an admonishment of foreign policy under the Reagan administration, is composed of repetitive horizontal bands juxtaposing the image of a naked corpse with a military leader in full uniform.
