ABOUT THE WORK

The paper collage piece on view, “Optimystics: Holy Gumballs!” is part of my “Optimystics” series, created after the 2020 election was resolved. It reflected the joyful emotion I felt: that true facts, science, empathy, and decency had returned— and would prevail. Although it’s getting harder each day to reclaim that feeling, I’m still hopeful that we can stay with the true blue.
