Babes in Arms

This baby is from a body of work which reflects my concern for the values we are passing on to the children of the world.

My babies are sweet and precious as all babies are, but they carry with them lethal weapons that may well be their future if indeed there is a future for them. They need the protection of gas masks and hard hats for their survival in the toxic world of war they face.

The contradictory symbols on the children’s clothing, religious icons and Disney-like characters on their gas tanks reflect our ambiguous value system..
