resistance of the heart

is not enough.

Self portrait. The text reads "resistance of the heart is not enough, put your hands to work." paper lithography and handmade jeans paper (from Michelle Wilson). Coptic binding.

“Resistance of the heart is not enough” was my response to the Bread & Puppet poster, “Resistance of the heart to business as usual (their website is: http://breadandpuppet.org/).  I love the poster, but I always find myself thinking, resistance of the heart really isn’t enough.  It’s a crucial start.  But alone, it means nothing get done and lots of people talk about how important it is to resist.  Resist like the very thought is enough to excuse them from action.

This self-portrait is my response: you have to get to work, you have to take action and change the world, remake and break through what is already there.

The endpaper is my own handmade beet fiber paper.
