The Power Of Love is a mixed media collage created in response to the posthumously published essay of Congressman John Lewis. In it, he reminds us that “democracy is not a state, but an act.” We are urged to “lay down the heavy burden of hate” and resort to love to foster good change in our society. While working, I was reminded of other icons from his generation, including Buddy Miles and Jimi Hendrix. The lyrics to Power Of Love and Lewis’ words played in my head as I create this collage.
