The World Needs A Superhero

In this work, I transform images of my children into superheroes. I have placed them in landscapes that foreshadow a desolate urban future. For many adults, the world now feels out of control. This work explores the idea that children, with their ability to continue to hope and dream, to use their imaginations to embrace the world and possibility, are the superheroes society needs to grapple with the challenges in front of us. But it also depicts a mother's concern for her children. In their ultimate vulnerability and helplessness, they embody the anxiety of a society on the brink.
