This painting highlights the juxaposition of millions of dollars being spent on space exploration while millions continue to starve on Earth. The moon screams while an astronaut plants a flag in the ground. The plate behind the children’s heads purposefully resembles a halo.
The tank is vilified by a Pinocchio-like nose and an evil-looking face. Each wheel represents a war-torn area of the world.
I have always been deeply disturbed that, while certain food establishments advertisements highlight the number of people that have had the privilege of eating their food, there are just as many people ignored in the world who are starving.
