Targets and Trophies | Painting and overview featured @ MatthewsPlace.com
Posted in August 2017
MatthewsPlace.com, the official blog of the Matthew Shepard Foundation, recently posted a reflection of my summer 2017 MFA thesis exhibition, Targets and Trophies.
Through a series of mixed media two and three-dimensional works, Targets and Trophies is an investigation of gay culture as an ongoing target of discrimination and violence.
“As a studio artist, I wanted to emphasize how horrific events often make things better for others — how the tragedy of someone like Shepard (or Harvey Milk, whose portrait I also painted for the exhibition) also creates hope.”
