THE NINE - RECLAIM RELOAD REMEMBER by kevissimo THE NINE - RECLAIM RELOAD REMEMBER by kevissimo
MIXED MEDIA OILGRAPH WITH GUNPOWDER ON PANEL // 24x24
From the new gunpowder series WARCRY

He was avid gun collector and reloader, spending his nights in the garage measuring powder into casings and reclaiming that which most would abandon.  
When they came to me along with all of his gunpowder, a new series began to stir in me. This one shell jumped out at me with his hand written label. "Reclaim" I gathered the spent shells behind it.

Where this series is going I don't know, but it's born out of where we are as a nation and as a people. 

There is talk of revolution in the streets. 
Where that will go I don't know either.

But in there somewhere, in this tension we live in, is the spirit of this series.

Powerful stuff, Kevin, in assorted senses of the word. It does feel like we're sitting on the powder keg.

(As an aside, I can understand why the NRA hated Hillary, but why they would support Trump was beyond me.)
