Artist’s Statement of work:
Glorifying and justifying war leads to the recruitment of “G.I. Joe’s.” This sculpture depicts the horrors of war. The unprovoked invasion of Iraq by the Bush administration has lead to the senseless, unnecessary and wasteful loss and destruction of the lives of our soldiers. War itself is a crime against humanity.
