Trust visions that don't feature buckets of blood Favorite 



Jan 2 1984



In the 1980s, Holzer and Lady Pink used New York as a backdrop for their artworks: Holzer wheatpasted posters and slogans on walls throughout Manhattan, and Lady Pink spray-painted graffiti on buildings and subway cars. The two also collaborated on a series of paintings on canvas, such as this work, for which Holzer composed phrases and Lady Pink did the painting. Trust visions that don’t feature buckets of blood was based on a recent image by the documentary photographer Susan Meiselas, who worked extensively in Nicaragua during the armed conflict that roiled the nation for decades in the second half of the twentieth century.

Timeframe For change

The art piece "Trust visions that don’t feature buckets of blood" is addressing the issue of violence and conflict, particularly in Nicaragua during the second half of the twentieth century. It encourages people to trust and believe in non-violent solutions to conflicts and to avoid violence as a means of achieving political or social goals.
This piece aims to raise awareness about political and social issues and to promote positive change.


This art can spread awareness to people who are not aware of the violence, particularly in developing countries.
