This painting shows a person eating a cup of ramen and checking the news on her smartphone as two comparable mob rampages happened in the U.S. and Brazil on Jan. 6, 2021, and Jan. 8, 2023, respectively. The resemblance between the two events, both provoked by former presidents who alleged electoral fraud without evidence, reveals the instability of democracy and the danger of extremism. The ramen, a symbol of comfort and satisfaction, contrasts with the disorder and distress on the screen, suggesting a sense of apathy and alienation from global issues.
Not Framed
