Portraits

a conversation on identity

As I've drawn several faces over the years, and especially within the past few months in quarantine, I've thought about the lives that are behind these features, this 2D representation of someone. And in the recent times with identity being such a determining aspect of one's experience in this world, I thought it was important to make the voices of these faces heard and give them a platform where they can speak on their identity and experience in this country.
