I was inspired to create this work out of frustration and fear that the shooting-related deaths in schools will not end. Depicted, are facial representations drawn in tribute to the “Parkland 17,” who are rendered without eyes to bring attention to the blindness of our political system when it comes to gun-control legislation. The 18th spot is occupied by a mirror. Who will be the next victim? Look in the mirror. Will it be you?
