Directly after September 11, 2001, I repeatedly heard "Why do they hate us so much?" This series is my reflection on that question. Each piece reveals two discordant interconnected human realities that exist simultaneously. The top layers are surface inked stencil monotypes, the under levels are painted monoprints. The images express how my modest middle class lifestyle exists at the expense of child slave labor around the world. It's about the brutal inequities of global economics.
