SCREWED by Mary Mazziotti

Mary Mazziotti: Eagle, 2016 (hand embroidery and applique on vintage textile)

I make memento mori (remember you must die) primary in textiles. Notwithstanding the seriousness of the subject I try to lean more towards wit than morbidity. 

SCREWED is a response to the “election” of an unhinged con man with the connivance of a hostile foreign power.  And I’m appalled and disgusted that so many Americans fell for his misogynistic, xenophobic, racist blather. The path he’s leading us down will not make American Great Again. It’s a death sentence for the best principles of democracy. Nations can have life spans, just as people do. SCREWED is a memento mori for America.

Wonderful! I've been paralyzed since the election-unable to create any thing and it's very inspirational to see one persons very effective reactions. Thank you for posting.
I am hopeful that pretty soon the ones who voted for him will realize they are loosing their medical and social security.
