My project exhibition TWO STORIES consists of thirty-three pen and ink artworks on bristol board, each sized at nineteen by twenty-four inches.
My work explores memories of moments in my life where social detachment, depression, the perception of permanence juxtaposed with the temporary nature of reality, loss of identity, the search for significance, and the nature of expectation coalesce. I also seek to simultaneously explore the differences and similarities in the perception of "self' from childhood to adulthood. I then use these experiences to craft stories told through the blended use of sequential images and words. Simply put, I make autobiographical comic books.
In this black and white imagery, I utilize bold black ink work, hand created letterforms, strong graphic shapes, and intricate cross-hatching, as well as the written word. The work depicts two separate stories, one from adulthood and one from childhood, each differing intentionally in style.
