Arty-Fact: A continuing series that examines the absurdities of today’s socio-political world. Gunz and God merely asks profoundly if a loving and caring God had given man the right to bear arms as outlined in the USA’s 2nd Amendment. The imagery depicts the very instance when God touches the hand of Adam in Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel mural, thus giving him life. Instead we have God handing Adam a bullet to go forth and propagate violence and killing. In the background, you have the relentless military industrial complex. Cherubs with kevlar vests symbolizing innocent lost souls as well as the dove of hope and peace.
