100% Natural #31-Until I Walk A Mile In Their Shoes

Craig Cheply's avatar Craig Cheply

My ongoing “100% Natural” Series since 2006 is: Contemporary visual statements of the observed socio/polit/enviro/econo/relig/geo/natural landscapes playing out on the domestic and world stages daily as subject matter. The artworks are rendered with the triple entendre entity Natural History (Certified) being the classification, subject matter and medium. I’m using our historic past literally, allegorically, metaphorically, representatively, recycled, repurposed, reused, time based, etc. as the medium upon divergent substrates. This piece is another contemporary rendered observation of a socio/polit/relig/environmental landscape (for far too long unfortunately)-displaced society from society due to wars, job loss, natural disasters, utilizing footprints from infants to elders scattered in all directions. Sometimes we as a "civil"-ization are too quick to pass judgement upon people without knowing all the facts....
