2018 Mixed Media Works on Paper

These pieces explore themes of family dysfunction and disintegration, cruelty, compassion, endurance, the relentless march of time, and greed -- all of which play out in The Sound and the Fury, by William Faulkner. The power of Faulkner's imagery and the beauty of his writing were a catalyst that enabled me to develop a visual vocabulary for the depiction of this content. My emphasis in this work is on gesture and mark-making, including the use of text as a vital element of visual expression.
