The Front

In today's paperSt. Augustine Record reporter Paulette Perhach quotes a local artist, Kris Battles whose "on the scene"artworks depicts our military in the Mideast.
" There's something that communicates across the board. It doesn't matter your political party, it doesn't matter your gender, it doesn't matter your race, it doesn't matter any of these things. There's something that can cross cultural barriers and all sorts of barriers that art does.There's humanity that we bring to it that sometimes journalism or just straight photography doesn't always capture, although there's been some wonderful photographs that have been done about war. I just think there's something very human about seeing the actual artwork itself. It's creative, so it just touches people in deeper ways I think."

We couldn't say it better. Story
