Aggregates For Avoiding Small Talk (I)
15" x 20"
charcoal and graphite on paper
Aggregates for Avoiding Small Talk is a new series of drawings striving to create a new language for connecting and communicating. Comprised of recognizable parts arranged in strange new combinations, each object is gathered, stacked, and compressed to tell the story of what it is to bear witness—to time, to trauma, to power lost and gained, to the paradoxes of protection, to the resilience inherent in what remains.
