Greetings from Iraq
The idea for GREETINGS FROM IRAQ began in a card shop where I noticed how similar images were re-cast using different messages for different audiences. I was thinking about the way images from the Iraq war were often suppressed- and those which were shown were claimed in different ways by different people.

I began by painting original gouache greeting cards (in the card-stand) based on photos of soldiers in Iraq. I then scanned these paintings into photoshop, and added different texts to the images, (photoshopped cards in racks on wall)

More photos also available at ReconnectUS.org a group of artists and curators also making work about the war in Iraq.
