Corey Pickett: Blank Cartridge

Corey Pickett's sculptures are an appeal for “Common-sense” gun laws and the re-evaluation of current gun legislation. He is concerned with the enormous amount of gun violence that takes place on a daily basis and, as a black man, he has a level of fear that is predicated on the current state of America and the nation's gun laws. The premise of his work is to initiate dialogue among the many perspectives related to gun rights with the hope that a reasonable mediation can be reached. His guns are surrogates for the real thing.
