Molly Shifrin PHL 241 April 27 th , 2009 Final Paper – Artwork Analysis In creating my artwork, I was trying to express my very jaded opinion of young love, especially in war times such as these. Using the juxtaposition of the images of young couples caught up in love’s embrace and images of war, I tried to get the point across that just because war is threatening our age, it does not mean that whatever hormonal shifts teenagers and young lovers are experiencing is actual love.
