Speaking Peace While Selling Arms is a limited edition screen print by Lisa Fingleton in collaboration with the Grilse Gallery.
It is so distressing to see the levels of violence and aggression in the world. It is particularly shocking to witness the hypocrisy of those who advocate for peace on one hand while making billions from the sale of arms and weapons on the other.
We hope that art can be a catalyst for change and help us create the peaceful transformations that the world needs.
We launch this print at the 2023 Winter Solstice in the hope that art can shine a light on the things that need to change, to highlight dissonance and discord in order to transform them.
A collaboration between Lisa Fingleton and the Grilse Gallery.

In the face of armed hostilities across the globe, ‘speaking peace’, printing the word PEACE, is at least something positive we can do.
