“State of the Union” Art Print by Rafa Jenn

The mysterious Rafa Jenn just dropped this new art print, and he actually gave a little bit of explanation about it. “State of the Union” is a 16″ x 24″ screenprint, has an edition of 50, and costs $49. Visit RafaJenn.com.

“I can remember thinking in my years as a student that art and politics make uneasy bedfellows. So it is only after thoughtful consideration that I present my latest print: “Sate of the Union”.
I realize that images will speak for themselves and will often find juxtaposition in a variety of contexts. In spite of that, and also because of it, I should briefly like to assert that for me this image corresponds with a felt sense of disproportion, of the distribution of wealth especially, of grievances against biased systems, and a yearning for a restoration of balance.
I don’t think this image aligns itself necessarily to the Right or to the Left. I am also open to interpretations beyond the scope of current political affairs… perhaps even humorous ones… In any case, I hope this image will stimulate the mind on more than one level.”

  1. Rafa puts out quality stuff. I like it.

  2. I agree. Always smart!

  3. The stars represent states. So, I would have thought this represented an increasingly growing federal government infringing on the power of the states, or our growing federal debt sufficating the people, but I guess it could be a wealth distribution thing…

  4. My take on this is, as ryan stated, that the stars are indeed the states, but the stripes represent the founding fathers of the country. Or the leaders today being the big wigs or fat cats. Being a bit too big for their own good.
