CHALK WORK (2017)

America was already at the height of click-happy surface-level culture in November 2016 when the government shifted. I found myself (like many others) slipping further and further into an anxious abyss. Envisioning these calming images somehow helped. These chalk pieces are my attempt to manifest those images on paper.
