Installation - 89.9 Cents Per Litre. 2003

In all wars the "civilian casualty" is the innocent victim of man's inhumanity to man.

This installation is a memento to the "civilian casualties" of all wars, past, present and future.

The gestures of some of the figures, here portrayed sculpturally in waste cardboard, are appropriated from the black and white figures in Pablo Picasso's 1937 painting "Guernica". Which to many, is the ultimate memento to the "civilian casualties" of war.

Ironically, the opening for this exhibition, which I started to construct when the Gulf War started, was shown at the Soapbox Gallery on America's Independance Day.
