Democracy Paper (Anxiety Drawings) 2020
In 2020 before the US presidential election, when all I could do was worry, I decided to create some works on paper specifically to sell to raise funds for get out the vote/anti-voter suppression efforts. Many of the pieces I made utilize notepad and ledger paper from my father's building career. He died in 2016 and working with his notes is a way for me to have more conversations with him. I thought he would be proud to have his piles of notes used for this purpose. And it gave me a way to channel my anxiety towards something productive.
