is a painting that seeks to reveal the ambiguity of our involvement in the Gulf War. Although the public campaign to enter the war focused on the liberty of the Kuwaiti people, an economic self-interest was clearly also at stake. The lack of public clarity on this issue, lent itself to a kind of doublespeak (where one thing was said, while another was widely held to be true).
