I wanted to encourage discussion amongst the viewers of this series. Sometimes we live in the shadows of our issues. We feel as though it's taboo to openly speak about things that affect our lives and the lives of those around us.
Two of the main topics of discussion illustrated are:
depression, suicide, self-harm
gang violence, imprisonment, re-entry of previously incarcerated persons
These works were ink printed on 16" x 20" poster boards and placed on easels.
