Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Ink, Graphite and Color on Paper.

This image explores the disconnection between what we are told about a group different from our own and what that group is really like.
I hope viewer's will make the effort to "see" the portrait and by doing so, recall that to know someone takes time and effort. Also, by extension, recall that many in our world try to persuade us with dangerously simplistic rendering of others for many reasons. We should always be wary of those who use too many generalisations.
The materials are an attempt to capture humanity through the fragility of paper and the variety of media to simulate the variety of influences and experiences that go into creating each one of us.
