Mars, mein lieben

Mars_300

War: first, one hopes to win; then one expects the enemy to lose; then, one is satisfied that he too is suffering; in the end, one is surprised that everyone has lost.

Karl Kraus, Die Fackel, Oct. 19, 1917

Mars, mein lieben (2014) is an encaustic pentaptych with embedded collage and image transfer. Here I have used maps of the planet Mars with re-purposed images from Hilter youth propaganda to reflect on the duplicitous romanticism of war. 25 x 68 inches total.
