Would You Pull the Trigger?

 With all the violence on TV and the reports on the death of Osama bin Laden, I couldn’t help but contemplate guns.  I have never owned or even touched a gun and looking up photos of them gave me chills, but they are a big part of our culture and they have made their way into the art on our walls.  Andy Warhol painted an entire series of them.

From pink and red

To the colors of the rainbow

To a very realistic depiction

They claim space at gallery exhibitions

And inspire other artists, like Gerard Yates, too.

I have a hard time imagining ever hanging gun art on my wall.  Even if the idea is to ponder violence and why it takes up so much space in our world.

What about you?  Would you pull the trigger and decorate with guns?
