While I will be writing more about this later, this current work… “This Is In Sync With Reality,” Frank Korb, Acrylic on Cloth, Canvas, and Masonite. Quilted Cloth with Bible Pages, Ballot Copies (Samples), Printed (Ink Jet) Wisconsin Maps, Gold Leaf, Stones, and Pine. 11 1/2″ x 27 5/8″, 2021. (Maquette.), is all about the voter suppression that the GOP in WI and ALL ACROSS THE COUNTRY and in the Supreme Court are pushing and passing in laws!
The work consists of four sections: a quilt, a wall, a canvas, and a hard panel of Masonite. Minority votes are being suppressed and the GOP of my state and quite possibly your state are working hard to suppress the votes of minorities and underserved. The quilt represents the monorities and underserved, the wall represents the wall that the GOP is building in laws and restrictions and rules about voting that work to restrict eligible voters. The canvas is the actual act of voting and the Masonite, the hard board, is the GOP with the hard edged rules that make it more difficult and suppressing for all voters to vote.
This is a maquette for two additional works that are in the works. Follow me in Instagram to see the works develop over time.
