A Valentine from New York Artists Against the War

These two works stand in for any comment that I could make about the absurdity of Valentine's Day and the marketing of romance in a time of war. Meanwhile people continue to die in Aghfanistan, Iraq, Gaza, the Sudan and Darfur as well as elsewhere.
But the US election and the economy is all that appears in the newspaper. Narcissism is our main perspective and Valentine's Day only reinforces the idea of emotions as commodities in our culture.New York Artists Against the War infiltrate a Nivea spring garden with a more important message, in the middle of Times Square.
