43 missing Mexican students, pile of bodies, torch
Quemar y Callar
woodblock relief print
10 x 17" (image); 13 x 19" (paper)

Print created for one of David Spencer-Pierce's "Retelling"print exchanges entitled "'The Disasters of War' - 21st Century, Inspired by works of Francisco Goya".
I riffed off of one of Goya's prints entitled "Enterrar y Callar" to create "Quemar y Callar".
I wanted to create something regarding the disappearance and probable murder of 43 students from the Ayotzinapa Escuela Normal. Though their whereabouts are uncertain I hope I am wrong in depicting them dead and about to be incinerated by the Mayor of Iguala.

Edition of 18 prints
First 12 prints in the edition to the print exchange.
