Description:
Cut Paper Collage; Background is water, center is a woman with a blue hat decorated with a gold salamander. Black bird is in front of her with a green bug in its mouth. Colorful paperclips line the edges, a fish comes in from the right side and a moth from the left.
Historical Context:
“My purpose is raising awareness of important social issues such as; institutional racism, danger to the environment, history of societal oppression toward descendants of slavery, and the impact of corporate greed. This is accomplished through the medium of collage art. Old books and magazine are recycled in the creation of the art. Fish, time and money are represented in each work of art. All we think about is time and money. Without fish (water), what good is time and money?” – Henry A. Brown
