Artist's statement on this artwork originally published on the @laborcamp Instagram account:
Yesterday pronouncements of our “leader” about his total authority over our lives more openly than ever move us closer yet to an all out totalitarian regime. I report today with an image balancing three visual references: 1. the 1932 Hitler presidential election poster; 2. The 1939 “Keep Calm and Carry On” British war poster; 3. ... but with Corona beer crown.
