Beloved Guardian  2003

Screenprint, edition is 20 with 9AP and 2PP. This work uses text drawn from two sources, a passage from the Toni Morrison novel "Beloved" that depicts terror against Black people in the US in the 1870s, and an article from the London Guardian newspaper that describes a US bombing in Afghanistan. In the artwork, the two disparate sources merge almost seamlessly into one.
