Hand Gun

In this piece I captured true gun stories from three disparate views. The conversation opens with hand-embroidered text in black and white and the repeating image of a gun-or is it? Different colors, positive and negative images of my hand, fingers curled, the theme, variations and composition are a nod to Wallace Berman's 1960s Verifax collages. When is it good? When is it bad? Where is the gray? Positive, negative-what colors our judgment? How do we trick ourselves?
