 Insurrection”, a hand-pulled reduction relief print, is a symbolic representation of the events of January 6, 2021.  I use the dramatic exterior façade of the Capitol that witnessed most of the injuries to make clear to future viewers the importance of where they took place.   The red caps of the Make America Great Again (MAGA) Trump following represent the thousands of rioting participants.  I show a Confederate battle flag, of which many were present, in order to represent the White supremacist leadership.  I show their violence against a Black police officer in reference to the nature of the coup.
