Despair of Politics
“Statue of Limitations”, a strong and controversial political image. This great drawing has been released about ninety years earlier than anticipated because reclusive artist T. Royal who prefers to release her work posthumously says there is just too much at stake to keep this particular image below the radar. “We’re fighting and dying ostensibly for the freedoms of other countries, yet here at home we see our own freedoms eroding on a daily basis,” Royal said.
Not surprisingly, the release of Statue of Limitations has evoked mixed reactions. While some people identify with the symbolism, others are clearly offended by it. “I don’t like what it says about our country,” said one art critic. “I’d rather see Lady Liberty standing tall with an Uzi in her hand.” The artist claims that she welcomes feedback from detractors as well as supporters on a community Feedback forum that she created at her website (the link is at the bottom) but the forum isn’t working, strangely enough, the store on the website that sell prints and other items portraying Statue of Limitations that are available for purchase is working just fine. I have a feeling that T. Royal is not her real name, but that doesn’t matter. I appreciate her highly detailed pencil drawings for its quality and guts, and I think that no matter what your political response to this drawing it is easy to appreciate the excellent craftsmanship of this artist who has no formal art training at all.
Zina Saunders’ Political Satires
Many artworks require lots of complicated explanations or speak in an abstract language that only the artist understand. Saunders’ political satires are completely clear, sharp, and totally self explanatory. We will give you just a taste from her vibrant, colorful, and very interesting portfolio – the link is as usual, at the end of the post.
