Respond - Full



























Encaustic and 22LR shell casings (once-fired by civilians and law enforcement) on 12”x12” board.


The grid of casings uses non-spaced, simple braille to spell out a quote by John Hospers. Unlike the Progressive attempt to demonize the victim and excuse the criminal, this work is an affirmation of the right of the victim to self-defense. “[T]he victim is entitled to respond according to the rule (‘The use of force is permissible’) that the aggressor himself has implicitly laid down.”

Nancy Lowe is an encaustic artist whose main body of work is dedicated to the defense of the Second Amendment. Her works include spent shell casings donated by law enforcement organizations.
