Ilma Gore and INDECLINE, “RISE UP THY YOUNG BLOOD”

Artist Ilma Gore and the artist collective INDECLINE have collaborated on a work made entirely out of human blood, entitled, “RISE UP THY YOUNG BLOOD”. This isn’t the first effort at Trump protest art by either artist; both Ilma Gore and INDECLINE have separately created works featuring a naked Trump. Nor is this the first time that blood has been used as a material for Trump protest art. The new 10′ by 15′ painting is a Trump-era take on the 1911 work, “Birth of the Flag”, by Henry Mosler. The 2017 update replaces Betsy Ross and a team of seamstresses with minorities. In an interview with Vice, Gore shares that she expects this will be the first of more Trump protest art yet to come.
