WAR & PEACE

This thought-­‐provoking collage of controversial and colorfully contrasting images reminds us of the presence of “conflict” in our daily lives both in the global and personal sense.
The reality is that there will always be war and peace somewhere as much as we may hate to face this fact. Some may say we need war to have peace in the end.

In a perfect world, we would certainly be better off without religion and ego, (not to be confused with spirituality) but more than likely these 2 issues will never cease to exist,
so the best we can hope for is for acquired wisdom in these areas, where hopefully resolution will be achieved through peace and NOT war.

The flying bullets and flowers here communicate that we always really do have a choice...

Symbolic of the outfit in Marc Andre J. Fortier’s work

Clothing is the external packaging we choose to wear which sometimes reflects who we are, or who we might want to be that day or night.
How we meticulously adorn ourselves and fashion, on its own, are absolutely a form of artistic expression.
Fabric, texture, flow, color, cut and embellishment, come together like a symphony that when joined, can sing out a lingering impression.
Today's rigid and dark wool suit can be worn to communicate power and authority like a kind of military uniform to warn others off and tomorrow's layered,
transparent and draping shift can be partnered to reflect whimsy and invitation.... May we never tire of this ritual of self expression...
