Might is Right (2015)

The 20th-century German Nazi Party made extensive use of graphic symbolism, especially the Hakenkreuz (swastika), which was used as its principal symbol and, in the form of the swastika flag, became the state flag of Nazi Germany. I have re-created this flag to identify the energy behind the Nazi movement as well as other movements that have relied upon military might to advance themselves. ‘Might is right’ or sometimes referred to as ‘survival of the fitness’ is an unevolved and unaware mind-state that is built on the belief that we all are separate beings and not an interconnected whole. It has been and will continue to be the underlying cause of all violation and war on this planet.
