Cultural Victimizations in War

I have been pursuing my path of figurative sculpture for the past few years. However, I intend to change direction somewhat, and focus on a natural progression that seems to be calling me. This has resulted from my combining our current cultural ideology with past historical or mythological ideas. I will explore specifically the idea of war, beginning with my personal connection with my mother, who is a surviving holocaust victim from World War II. This will include issues that are common to all victims of injustice during war, leading to our current American wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
