Painting Guantanamo

Don't you just hate euphemisms? The use of torture on prisoners in Guantanamo Bay was known as "enhanced interrogation techniques"! This watercolour by Steve Mumford isn't a torture device, although it looks like one. It's a Restraining Chair for Forced Feeding, Detainee Hospital, Guantanamo Bay (16/5/13). Steve made two visits to Guantanamo Bay to paint anything but the prisoners. The BBC has posted a video of his excellent watercolours and his explanation of what he painted (CLICK). His exhibition The Snow Leopard is on display at the Postmasters Gallery in New York City (CLICK).
