AFTERMATH

This series of drawings explore the proliferation of violence in our culture and the memories of the people left behind after a callous crime. My imagery is drawn from public government information websites and press accounts of violence . Common elements in these works include juxtaposed outlined silhouettes that built up busy narratives.The residual quality of graphite and the remains of erased layers allude to the remembrance of victims.
