This artist statement is made possible by generous funding from these sponsors:
The Amitabha Buddhist Core:
Promoting Faith-Based Conflict Resolution Management Systems since 2001. Adherents to any kind of theology will always need help finding a balance in meting out justice and mercy. World famous Tibetan Buddhist Conflict Resolution breaks the cycle on Class B fires and insulates Class A fires, including electrical. When you face splinter groups, moral lapses among leadership, and financial short comings, Amitabha will bring your dumpster fire into harmony with its container once again.
The South East Asian Strike Anywhere Matches:
When you buy Strike Anywhere Matches, you get the best of both worlds; a match that lights quickly and easily, plus one that is made with respect for the environment. Our matchsticks include wood from responsibly managed forests. The manufacturing repurposes nationalism into INCENDIARY spiritual identity you can mobilize toward ANY religious minority.
