This is a mail-in exhibit, so we don't get the artwork back when it comes down. Inexpensive creation is key: I re-purposed a cereal box to create a fold-up mailer, which will protect my work on it's way to USC Keck School of Medicine.
A little packing tape; a little gesso; we're in business.
'Fly Away Home' is an ongoing collaboration that I've been creating with model Brenda Lucero. We began this project in 2016; this project is dedicated to the memory of Brenda's little brother, Johnny. I am grateful to Brenda for her friendship, her talent, and her courage in sharing this personal pain with the world, through our art.
'Fly Away Home' ongoing series, beginning December 2016
