2014-15 | Collector

The Collector series was made when my first nephew began to walk and talk. It contemplates our peculiar urge to collect and organize, even as children. The child in the series is often costumed and surrounded by unresolved space.

In cases where a work did not perfectly fit the themes of a series, I placed that work according to date. I placed these less related works at the bottom of the page.
