Pointing Hands

Roy Arenella, "THEM vs. US" (28 Jul 2006)

Roy can find profound puns and make good conceptual use of them better than anyone else I know. Here a wedge of printer's fists points right at a larger printer's fist, pointing back--all suggesting conflict. But, we learn, that these accusing hands can also come into a handshake that avoids consternation.

On the back of this card (numbered 235C) Roy has rubberstamped a two-fingered, one-handed piece sign in his pseudo-cancellation mark, to continue the trope.
