The December Masters Student Exhibition at Gray's went well. It was interesting to learn how to frame my work with floating images. There was a lot of preparation for this piece of 12 images and I feel that it came together well. I hope that each image was given enough space for observers to get to know the political and social issues they portray. It is difficult to see in the images above, but each image arises from news articles found online or in newspapers. This theme began as little sketches and was and continues to be a way for me to digest some of the challenging stories and headlines that we get in the news today. I find it also a way of finding empathy with those involved by sitting with the issue or persons for a longer period of time.
