”For this body of work I have assembled more than 100,000 hand cast crayons of varying colors and shades to produce a body of work that, to the best of my knowledge, is unlike anything done before in art. These individual “pixels” of wax are precisely stacked into specific locations inside of wooden frames to produce a new art form that uniquely balances the qualities of both photography and sculpture. Further, I have developed a mapping system that translates the English alphabet into 26 discrete colors and I use these crayon “fonts” to add words and language to each of the pieces in the show.”
Problem: Every 15 seconds a woman is assaulted in her home, including physical, sexual, and mental abuse from the person closest to her. Half of men who abuse mothers also abuse their children. Many times the lives of these women and children are threatened if they try to leave.
