A collage of images. The top half has a figure with its face covered by a lit lightbulb. Below that, there is a face with a hand covering part of it.
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 are. All we think about is time and money. Without fish (water), what good is time and money?” – Henry A. Brown
