Seeing Red #2, screen print, red film and acrylic, edition of three, 2020

Seeing Red #2 is a reiteration of Seeing Red, updated in a larger format and with additional text. The layers of red text are printed in transparent screen printing ink one on top of another, quotes taken from various news sources from anti-maskers, folks who are anti-BLM, against immigration, NRA supporters, and tweets from the 45th President of the United States. 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.”
