Lafayette Square 2020
Reduction Relief Print
12 x 14 inches framed
Limited edition of 10 using all archival materials including the handmade paper.
In the nation’s capital on June 1st 2020, National Guard and mounted police cleared Lafayette Square of peaceful Black-Lives-Matter protesters with violence, flash grenades and tear gas.
This reduction print is patterned after Henry Pelham’s 1770 engraving “The Fruits of Arbitrary Power”. In my work, Saint John’s Episcopal Church replaces the Massachusetts Courthouse, teargas replaces black powder smoke, and protesters fall before armed US soldiers instead of British Redcoats.
