Little did I realize, when I began this series of etchings, that real politics would become part of my artwork. Fake News???? I am posting one of the over 100 monotype etchings: Natural History:Alexander Hamilton, today. True or False? I will answer this in my next blog. Censorship is the antithesis of art. I believe in the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and all the hard fought laws that American citizens gave their lives to defend.
Original premise: Pliny the Elder (who died in the Vesuvius explosion ) tried to collect a book of all knowledge-the first encyclopedia – and did he get a lot wrong! But even so, much of it still believed today.
