The pieces shown in the Ampersand Gallery reflects the powerfully intimate resonance the research on media- saturation and the death penalty had on the artist. In this new figurative work, faces and bodies, simultaneously contemplative and turbulent, stand as witnesses to the testimonial as well as the cleansing powers of the arts in contemporary society.
