Georgey Boy & the New World Order Diptych

Georgey Boy & the New World Order, 2015. Pencil and sharpie on drawing paper. 18″ x 24″

I created this diptych as a response to conspiracy theories that intrigued me, as well as how those theories connected to some of the symbolism on American currency. The textured background behind George Washington is hard to make out, but it is the text of the Declaration of Independence. I edited it to include only the grievances that apply to our government today. There is symbolism in all of the details of these pieces, much of which is in protest to violence and greed. The text in the pyramid is the description of the seal according to its original creator, Charles Thomson. Underneath the pyramid lies the fabled Hall of Records. And yes, the banner on which “Novus Ordo Seclorum” is written is made of toilet paper.
