Hand to Hand:
Since the beginning of the Iraq War in March 2003, I painted a news story almost daily on stuffed white gloves. These gloves depict the newspaper headline, the date the story appeared and my interpretation of the event. Each glove is a "rosary bead" in this on-going, meditation of war witnessing. They are not for or against the war.

Since January 2006, I expanded the project to include other artists in a variety of media as a living community dialog. Each artist has signed up for a specific week. They have chosen a news story a day during "their week" and created glove-related art works in response. There are now 187 artists participating from all across the USA, and Turkey and about 1600 glove/hand artworks to date. Hand to Hand has appeared in whole or part in 15 galleries across the U.S.A.
