Justice 2001 - 2009, linocut, 10.5" x 7" image area, Marc Snyder 2008
You might just remember Fragments From a Journal of the Secret War, a broadside that I designed around Ron Offen's poem. At the time I mentioned that the lower third of the broadside would be a stand-alone linocut that I would edition at some point in the future. Well, the future is now, and the first linocut from the edition is now available for purchase on eBay. As a matter of fact, odds are this will be the only print from this edition that I will sell at auction - the rest of the edition will be available for purchase directly from FIMP after the auction is over.
I've scheduled the auction to end one hour after the polls close in California on Election Day. This image is my portrait of the state of Justice after 8 years of the Bush administration. It's my great hope that an image that I might make four years from now of the same topic would be much different than this one. Maybe we'll see some hope of that on November 4.
