Mirrored Series

Coffee and ink on antique ledger paper.

Another common theme in my work is mirrored images. These tend to drive me crazy during the process of actually creating them, but I keep being pulled back. I have always been fascinated by our ability as people to be in direct opposition to those that are the exact same as ourselves. This fascination began when I came to know a survivor from the genocide in Rwanda whose story showed how society can aim to destroy those that are different from ourselves, even though there really is no difference. It has developed conceptually since then and has become all the more relevant within our current political landscape.
