COUNTING SOULS: ANTI-BIRTHCONTROL.           

1992.  Oil, wood, nail, Bible (42" x 36”). 

 

ARTIST COMMENT:  Faith/ideology supercedes suffering—“God works in mysterious ways,” it is said.  That there are those who deserve and those who deserve not and that is the way of the world.  Think not of the sufferings of a child; rejoice only if his ‘soul’ is officially counted.  [PHOTO-BASE: Ben Shahn, Jerry Cooke, Les Stone, Margaret Murray.]
