About This Work

The motorcycle police officer represented in this image is a metaphor on several levels: first, for the United States, because little is more American than this archetypal image; but also for a deeper meaning of freedom, as represented by the motorcycle, and yes, also of the dangers inherent in a sometimes unsupervised police force, as has been amply shown in the recent American past. "Quis custodiet ipsos custodes", asked Juvenal — a question that today is more important than ever.
