My recent work is about the death of the American Dream which has been perverted into the Capitalists Dream. It's the dystopia we experience now since wealthy, powerful politicians and corporations put profit above everything else, shift the burden of taxation to the poor and middle class, refuse to allow basic human rights like free health care, free education, a livable wage and income security, pollute and pillage the Earth’s resources and do everything they can to discredit and undermine the news media, once considered the fourth branch of government. I am skeptical of our so called “free” society with its pretense of democracy that isn’t democratic with its winner-take-all elections, no democracy at the work place, a free market economy with its subsidies, tariffs, price fixing and floating dollar value is anything but free and a military industrial complex waging war because it’s good for business. My art challenges us to think about the world we choose to create and participate in every day. --Ty Bowman
