The Epic of Man

The Epic of Man

The idea of war and weaponry are both attractive and repulsive to me. Imagine if wars never existed from the beginning, and man never had to kill, whether in anger or to protect. What could we dream of and build if wars or murder were never a consideration? Yet at the same time, I find myself drawn to the design of the tools and weapons of war. Perhaps from my father's participation in World War II, and later as a police officer. The quote in the bottom right is from Ernest Hemingway, in a 1930s-era magazine. Hand-cut collage, including a deconstructed map, on masonite, 20x33x2".
