Operation Protective Edge
"This land of God cannot be for some a land of life and for others
a land of death, exclusion, occupation or political imprisonment."

Gaza epitomizes the epicenter of the harrowing ethos and pathos of human conscientiousness — the thesaurus to every psychological algorithm imaginable or inflictable upon a dispossessed people.
For more than 60 years and several generations going forward, the people of Gaza — who were culturally and ancestrally uprooted from their homeland — have since steadfastly endured the abysmal scourge of survival and strangulated coexistence.
The credibility of today's psychology, therefore, cannot be given a conscientious accreditation if its corpus utterly lacks any or all substantial reference to the psychologically inherited traumas of Gazans and the corresponding physical catastrophes they have been continually subjected to.
The paintings below reflect the devastatingly political impact of the world's calibrated indifference not only to the plight and suffering of the Palestinian people, but of all people displaced through the sanctification of corporately-funded-warfares.
To profit from the proliferation of mass suffering, devastation and death is a war crime of the most heinous nature. Uncondonable in perpetuity and a damning stigma on and of our presence in time's athenaeum!

To be, or not to be, that is the question—
For who would bear the Whips and Scorns of time,
To grunt and sweat under a weary life,
