oil, wax, archival paper, and obsolete currency on panel.
What Has Been Said.
Alternate take on the larger We 3 & The Ho Chi Me, this newer piece, titled, Ho Chi You, by Los Angeles modern artist Brian Drake, is another thought on the legacy of Vietnam.
Overpainted on obsolete Dong from the 1980's, this piece extends the conversation about western interventionism, cheap labor markets and the narrative around "enemy".
Crafted in the scale and aspect ratio of paper currency, this piece reads in any position. This allows for flexible display possibilities, in both 180 degree vertical formats. 30x48 CURRENTLY NOT OFFERED
