As Abraham Lincoln was the American most singularly responsible for seeking to end America’s brutal, imperialist, anti-faith and ethically perverse, morally obscene economic system of slavery, I always consider this 1988 drawing to be part of my human rights artworks.

Collection of the artist. If there is an institution or non-profit interested in permanently displaying it (e.g. in offices, a conference room, visitors reception area, etc.) I will offer it as a gift.
