"Political Revolution" shot February 20 in the 18b Arts District I Photo PtD.
Isaac Zevalking (Recycled Propaganda): In the 18b Arts District is this non-paper version of wheat-paste infiltration, a coated sticker. The customary signifier for rebellion, an urgent fist, thrusts out from the word POLITICAL used in a bold type that is reversed out white over a field of tangled roots. The word REVOLUTION is the solution, says the art, by using a strong black that offsets the arm and hand made of soft blue with black and gray highlights. The base of the image is the brand also in gray. There is no confusion to the message, except that the revolution is partially concealed. It is about the materials being used by the artist. This is showing how propaganda to be reapplied, reused or recycled.
