The series "Babes in Arms" reflects my concern for the values we are
passing on to the children of the world. My babies are sweet and
precious as all babies are, but they carry with them lethal weapons
that may well be their future. They need the protection of gas masks
and hard hats for their survival in the toxic world of war they face.
Babies adorned with weapons and gas masks juxtaposed with religious
symbols are intended to be provocative. Some of the weapons the babies
are burdened with are ridiculously oversized, reflecting the world's
increasing arsenal of weapons. The rationale for the esclation in
weaponry is that they keep us safe, a deadly paradox.
