Seeing Red #2 is a reiteration of Seeing Red, updated with additional red text, including tweets and quotes from the 45th President of the United States, and printed with layers of transparent screen printing ink on a larger scale. In this version, the viewer looks through a plexiglass barrier, something we are very familiar with in 2020, to see what lies underneath the layers of red text: “America: Where my right to do whatever I want, however I want, whenever I want is more important than your right to live.”
