BEST ANTI-WAR SHOW
Iswaswillbe Singer Gallery
There were no overt references to the war in Iraq in Isweswiflbe,
but there were plenty of things that referred to war In general.
The title painting, in particular, was tough to look at a robust
SS officer in flull Nazi regalia drapes his arm around a skeleton
wearing a prayer shawl. The Singer is in the Mizel Center. a Jewish
Institution, and artist Geoffrey Laurence is Jewish. but that didn't
prevent some from being deeply offended. The chilling anti-war messages
in this show were delivered via meticulously done paintings, and,
in truth, well-crafted pieces are rare in political art.
