“My current collection of work, in a range of different media, is an attempt to critically examine the inequality and exploitation that has been the essential foundation of this “republic.” It is my observation that the system, increasingly governed by a greedy, wealthy ruling class, is no longer a republic, and will be the architect of its own demise. Evidence of this downfall is accumulating: loss of bio-diversity, perpetuation of slavery, the prison industrial complex, perpetual war, corporate malfeasance, homelessness, global warming and the absence of socialized health care and education.” – Esther Ervin
