What's happening here:
Informal artist's talk

Join me in my studio to talk about the Saga series, a multi year project based on Trajan's column. The work is comprised of a series of large works on paper that, when hung end to end, serve as a continuous narrative of our current political climate. I use a theatrical nauralism to show charcters navigating a perilous allegorical landscape: you can see frogs escaping Alleppo and Bannon-bats, as well as a host of other familiar and unfamiliar figures. I'll be showing the completed sections of the Saga series as well as work in progress and I'll be talking about the work on an informal basis over the course of the day.
