“La Frontera” depicts callous treatment of Mexican workers in the USA.

The fence symbolizes conflicting attitudes toward immigration. Young female workers must submit to Gardasil vaccinations becoming Guinea pigs for drug manufacturers. The chained dog represents thinly veiled negative ethnic stereotypes.  I create art  which facilitates change through awareness for a more humane world.
