Linoleum carving and monotype, 24”x18”
“Impact” is a series that is directly inspired by wars and genocides taking place worldwide. My fascination however, is not with wars, but with people. I love listening to, and reading people’s stories. I am interested in all people – the over-privileged and the under-served alike: refugees, CEO’s, prisoners, soldiers, the rich, poor, conservative, liberal. I am obsessed with wanting to comprehend the way in which we all affect each other. I do feel a particular affinity with people who are victims of intense political events. It is not easy to reconcile my personal vulnerability as a human being with being a part of the world’s most powerful nation, and listening to many different voices is my way of trying to make sense of things.
