11. We Are Family, mixed media
For me, truth resides in the immediacy of simple lines drawn true. These pieces from my 2007 MFA portfolio for Mass Art are primarily representational works on paper. At the time, my work was primarily figurative because I sought to comment on the human condition, especially cultural issues. This collection also includes works-prints, drawings, and photographs-motivated by the pure pleasure of interpreting my visual observations with graphic media.
