Artist Statement:

We consider the Trump administration to be a graveyard where we are forced each day to witness the daily burial of American moral conscience and civil liberties. Each quote echoes a distinct Trumpian thought, issued forth from the weathered patinas of outdoor cemetery sculptures.
