Artwork Explanation: Ethan’s Cow is an original digital work of art created entirely on computer and then printed on fine art paper. It is a piece talking about the financial crisis worldwide and the refugee crisis it has created. Politicians and their decisions have created a refugee crisis resulting in thousands of deaths, people trapped in refugee camps, children separating from their parents. People climbing on fences trying to escape from these camps for a better future and social revolution then follows. Politicians and lobbyists (figure on the right) know very well what is going on, but they don’t really care, they keep acting according to their financial interests. As a result innocent children die and are being constantly under threat of poverty and hunger. Attacking nations in the name of freedom, doves turning to vicious army planes. Eyes and mouths being shut (figure on the bottom) and the same thing goes on and on like a circle.
