HYPOCRISY IN HYPOCRISY

These artworks are informed by the inherent hypocrisy and logical flaws embedded in societal censorship. Kent is intrigued by how physical violence such as shooting a gun is deemed to be more appropriate than simple verbal expressions or acts of love and kindness. This series is hypocritical to Kent himself as he does not believe in the use of guns, the idolizing of fabric (flags) and the “magic” of santa claus.
