I painted this piece and chose this quote to match it because I wanted to speak about ignorance, and the way that humans handle problems in the world. The painting shows this by having a man within a bottle, having a comfortable life. The bottle is floating in a filthy ocean, surrounded by hurt people who only want to get a small part of this nice life he has. The man in the bottle is wearing a blindfold with eyes painted on it, expressing that he is blind to the problems of others, yet is trying to pretend he cares. The blindfold is the same color as the wounds on the animals, and the stitched mouths of the people, to show that his blindness both silences and hurts others. I believe art that demonstrates social and political issues is very important. Would-conscious art is a way of expressing my thoughts and beliefs in a beautiful way, and reaching large numbers of people with the same image. The reason I began developing my skills as an artist was to one day create images like this. I hope one day to create films and works of art like this to change people's minds and motivate change in the world.
