Larry Thompson The Presidents' Rug & The Infant Tree

Larry Thompson's avatar Larry Thompson

The Presidents' Rug, 10' diameter, plastic toy soldiers and paint on wood. The Presidents' Rug is modeled after rugs designed for the Oval Office. The piece asks the question of our leadership if they are considering the lives of the men and women who are being stepped upon as decisions are made to continue our ongoing wars. The Infant Tree, 12' x 12' footprint, 8' in height. Plastic toy babies, paint, wood, steel, and sand. The Infant Tree, modeled after Ocotillo Cactus speaks to the collateral damage and loss of innocence in war.
