Denise M. Riggs
I made Be No More over many months during the pandemic. The headlines were so negative, constantly filled with news of protests, violence, anger and fear. I was contemplating the effects of that negativity on the larger world while creating this collage.
The collage, Might With Right, is an attempt to express the futility and stupidity of gun violence and the masculine war culture that seems perpetual and is commercialized in our country. The title comes from Amanda Gorman's poem The Hill We Climb.
