Four New Art Prints by Ben Scanlon

Subliminal Projects has released four art prints by Ben Scanlon after his show there.  “A Heartbeat And A Guitar – Numbers 1, 2, 3, 4″ are 20″ x 25” giclees, have editions of 25, and are $75 each.  Here is what he had to say about the work:  “The images depicted in these prints represent the genocide of Native Americans and the bleaching of the native culture through the sheer force of European domination.  Antonino D’Ambrosio’s book The Making of Bitter Tears introduced me to the protest album (namesake of the book) that Johnny Cash made in the 1960s.  Johnny Cash sang about the tragic Native Americans history as they suffered death, slavery, disease and war after European colonization.  Listening to Johnny Cash’s album inspired me to rediscover the history of the Native American struggle, which still continues today.”  Visit
