Relative Scale

These works are produced at life size. Their scale is important to convey the human impact of the subject. These are not postage stamp images on the television. Our most popular and often reproduced image is the Abrams tank. This vehicle produced by the USA to hold back the Soviet threat was blooded first in Iraq in 1991. Although most people won't know it's name they will recognize it from the news and the movies. Familiarity with the subject helps bring it closer to home. The Abrams tanks is produced in the USA at a time when US manufacturing is in decline. Built to drive back the Soviets economically and militarily the Abrams is a symbol of transition from the nuclear horizon to asymmetrical terror.
