Reception Date and Time: September 26, 2019 at 6:00 | Artist talk at 6:30 p.m.

My work explores ideas of gender, identity and liberty and is inspired by the graphic tradition of social commentary. I draw from medieval engraving, Persian miniatures, current politics, and graphic novels to create a contemporary narrative. My work uses humor to draw the viewer in and then asks them to confront greater social issues. Although I work in a range of graphic media, from lithography to animation, I return to black and white etching as the most direct (albeit laborious) method to emphasize the influence of historical sources and the urgency of my content.

Gallery hours:

Monday - Friday  12:00 to 5:00 p.m.
Thursday 12:00 to 9:00 p.m.
