Crisis Oh Mighty Crisis

Trinja Henrickson's avatar Trinja Henrickson

There is great humor to be found in the current American political boiling pot these days. As an artist, I am witnessing this crazy history in the making and I must respond. We are an amazing country, powerful and abundant, living each day on war-free soil. We have agreed that freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and all the freedoms we have designed in the Bill of Rights is paramount and must be preserved. How cool is that? I address, in this painting, that sometimes freedom can be too much responsibility for some, for it is used unwisely and without responsibility. And yet still, at the same time, freedoms are often ignored and go unnoticed altogether. So, maybe we all need to take a moment and reflect, and "self checkout" ourselves.
