The undeniable truth
Identity can be represented in a plethora of ways. Life and death was an appealing concept for me. This piece represented the undeniable truth that is death. Every living creature must grow to appreciate the life cycle. Mourning is real and unavoidable, but also a part of life. The "Undeniable Truth" shows death in the light of beauty, cycle and creation.
Showing my hometown pride for Fargo, ND this screenprint is designed to reveal the "truth" about Fargo from a comical point of view. The inside of the poster / zine says: "Fargo is more than just flat lands and bad accents." Due to the Fargo movie (1996) and now the Fargo Series (2014) there are a lot of stereotypes that I have had to accept. In this zine, I share some of the things that have lead to Fargo's reputation: cold winters, middle of nowhere, flat land, terrible accents, the sledding dike and of course the The Fargo Theater, The Hjemkomst Heritage Center.
