These last few days have been traumatic. No not physically no, traumatic nationally. My conception of my country and the people that are supposed to govern have betrayed me.

Already we have politicians blaming each other, a group of politicians are taking back everything they campaigned on. The financial repercussions are immense and already racism is rearing it’s angry head.

 My art is comforting me so much, the taking of the image, the composition and the processing.
