22 Karat gold, Graphite, ink and charcoal on 300b Cotton paper. 'Love Bomb' is more than a conversation about the cyclical nature of war and peace, it is an isolation of the way in which the line between the two is so easily manipulated. In driving the discussion forward, Waggett poses the question, if we could all stop for one moment in time and feel simultaneous love would war and hatred ever appear again? Would we see the error of our ways and only continue to feel love?
The repeated pattern shows the atmosphere of war the permeates human history while the eye is drawn to the intricate pattern that surrounds the drawing. This intricate pattern is a representation of purest forms of our existence, nature, love, joy, and fraternity. These are the emotions we chase but fail to grasp because our means never lead to those intended ends.
The work is a commentary on how man’s ingenuity in war has always outpaced those mechanisms he has created to sustain peace.
