In 2017, I made a pair of paintings that were, in part, a commentary one the way many Americans are more terrified of sex than of gun violence, but to participate in the March For Our Lives in March 2018 I decided I needed to paint this image. I wanted to make a more direct critique of American gun laws. For more about the making of this painting, check out this video.
