I wanted to illustrate the idea, often driven by colorful politicians, that people are poor simply because they are lazy. The poor are demonized, called names, dehumanized and accused of ruining the country. This idea is perpetuated by extremely rich entitled people who have never even come close to poverty. I chose to work with the encaustic medium for this project because I thought it would illustrate the hard circumstances many people struggle against in their fight to overcome poverty.
