Print Receives Award and Heads to Competition
- "One More Transaction Going Down" was recently awarded Third Place at the 22nd Annual Thomas Hart Benton Art Competition and Exhibition. It was also just selected for Lore Degenstein Gallery's Ninth Annual Figurative Drawing and Painting Competition and Exhibition at Susquehanna University. This print is an eight color reduction block print that is hand carved.
- Depicted in this image is a 14 years old girl, the average age of entry into human trafficking, and she is being sold into a world of violence, repeated rape, and forced drug use. Human trafficking does not discriminate, it just exploits. Today 27million people worldwide are sold into slavery. No age, gender, or race is excluded. As an artist my work strives to bring the harsh reality of this world to light so that I can help bring awareness to this social injustice.
