From the artists colophon:
"THEME/ CONTENT OF WORK: The 2 ton 1oz. theme print 1 created attacks the antiquated, outdated ideas and traditions that had never changed with the changing times. Some of the ideas and traditions come in the form of ancient government and state laws and regulations of this American society, some morality traditions which we live by in this society, some religious dogma and some unwritten but understood nasty traditional values which reside in every family tree and so forth. As our American culture, which is now in the postmodern era, pushes towards the 21st century we still find racism existing at a high rate, domestic abuse still a big issue though it is "out of the closet" now and sexual harassment (a big "in the closet" issue) prevailing in our top institutions such as the armed forces, the US Government, Universities, Colleges, Churches, Corporations etc. We must at some point in our lives realize that these "old dog’s" must be eliminated by new laws for a more positive future for this country or they will result in what the street signs point toward behind the A 2 Head 1 Body 2 Ton 1oz. Mossback? you see in your exchange print. A mossback is slang for a conservative who does not want progress."
