Art responds to the world
You respond to the art
KAM responds to you

Vernon Fisher (United States, born 1943)
Man Cutting Globe, 1992
Acrylic on paper
Gift of Anlsey I. Graham Trust

Here Vernon Fisher plays on the American custom of carving pumpkins during Halloween. The comic illustration, with rosy cheeks and polka-dot tie, brings humor to Fisher's social commentary.

What happens when we treat the planet like a possession to mark and carve?

What is our responsibility to the globe?

Who gets to carve up the planet?
