I wanted to create a piece specifically for this show. When I think of Paris I think of love and romance. At the same time though I have seen images of the opposite over the past several years coming from Paris and many other parts of the world. I wanted to create a piece that visualized love conquering hate. I thought what would be better than adversaries enjoying their city together peacefully as children would. Thus I created a piece depicting yellow vest protesters and police doing just that, with a touch of humor.
