Majority

I had a couple of different names for this serigraph in mind but knew that many people wouldn't understand or appreciate the humor. This design is a humorous look at committees and bureaucracies, whether these groups be from our work, personal lives, or political associations. These groups who seem to have so much say and control over our lives yet also seem to be unaware of the basic premise of the power of the majority, because after all we as the majority still have control - we simply have to choose to assert it.
