Innocence Lost

Any culture's structure whose supports are founded on violence will end in violence. The archaic and erroneous belief that women are property has persisted throughout history. Vestiges of those beliefs persist still to this day. If one person's freedom and noblity is jeopardized everyone's is subject to that same tryanny. The effort and work to free those who are still oppressed is one of the highest callings that humankind can do. Working to bring about social justice and exposing the evils of any prejudices through art has been a vehicle used by artist for revolution and change. And as an artist I feel compelled to do my share of that work. Art is the medium that I chose to uncover and expose the remnants of this antiquated and evil conviction that women are property. This small painting was my contribution to that effort. visionary imagist "Joey"

This is a very powerful work, not just in terms of the incredible colours and layout, but also in terms of subject matter, never have we had such a young generation bombarded by the media in such a a young person I have found it very stressful as you are constantly being forced to grow up so fast into the worst kind of adult world. Very thout provoking, thankyou for sharing! :)
