In the studio

I’ve been developing a new project called Family, for a couple of years. I’m hoping to complete the drawings by the end of next month. At this point the project consists of over 300 brush and ink drawings of faces on rice paper. The faces represent members of an extended family, with each face being represented twenty times.

My current studio installation has each person’s face is arranged in a group directly adjacent to groups of other people’s faces. Each drawing of a face is torn from the sheet on which it was drawn. The faces are placed like paving stones on a wall of my studio, from floor to ceiling.
