Description

Artist Statement
Points of View II - Babel addressed issues relating to the Falklands War. It implemented functional and iconographic structures that were similar to Points of View I. Egyptian hieroglyphs were used to articulate both a visual and psychological architecture - a hierarchical edifice that set out to identify the essential pathology of power and its inevitable predisposition to oppression and warfare.
