This "Peace Fingers" (Variable Stencil Edition) is a collaboration produced with my good friend and former co-worker Ernesto Yerena. Each piece is a stencil painting with unique variations in background painting and relief texture created with a thick application of acrylic medium through pattern stencils. The price difference between the two variable editions is because of the greater technical and labor-intensive demands of the geometric version. A portion of the proceeds from these stencil pieces will go to Amnesty International to support their efforts to improve human rights conditions and policies.
I originally made the "Peace Fingers" image in 2006 as a response to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan but updated the art with a new floral pattern in early 2019 to support universal background checks as part of the #EndGunViolenceTogether campaign. Peace is not the absence of disagreement but the ability to resolve the disagreement without violence. Peace takes more thought, more kindness, more diplomacy, and more creativity, but hey… I'm actually into all of those things.
