THE ART

Identification Please showcases a collection of ink on paper works, some with subtle coloration, incomplete images of faces and bodies in abstracted space. The ability to identify others contributes to our sense of security, yet imposed insecurity contributes to our desire to remain unidentifiable. The figures represented in this collection are drawn from life, most among them subjects known to the artist.
