Artists’ Statement

Dedicated to the children of the world who are without food to eat, much less things to draw with”
The work represents four individual children in a united cluster standing above a black rubber barrier as a symbol for the Gaza strip. The belt, which could potentially inflict wounds, is distressed and cracked. The two girls are red and purple in color, and the two boys are black and blue, indicative of beating and bruising. The children resist and stand together with a will and determination to move forward despite any adversity.
