Trajectory

.243 Trajectory_ 24″x48″_ gunpowder, graphite, gold leaf, white acrylic on wood panel.

The title  comes from the gunpowder curve, which is based on the trajectory of a bullet shot from a .243 Remington rifle. (y axis= 1″ = 2″ of drop, x axis= 1″ =10 yards)

This is the first in a series of pieces based on ideas of how one might achieve salvation within a culture of honor. I am currently questioning how male youth finds presidence for behavior based on the examples set by one’s culture. What are the values in the system and how does one achieve them? Once the desired values are achieved is salvation still a viable option?
