Christine From San Francisco

a woman's portrait is drawn with charcoal on a newspaper
Christine from San Francisco

Christine was nice enough to send me a portrait of herself along with a newspaper from the town she lives in. I ended up wanting to make her portrait larger than life, so I purchased a few newspapers of my own from San Francisco in order to sew 3 front pages from various days together.

I am finding that I’m more and more attracted to the colors black, white, and gray. I can’t say why yet, but some day I will figure it out. One reason may be that I want Christine to appear to be part of the newspaper. I’m trying to conceptually show that all persons are connected to all events. These newspapers are from the town Christine lives in. A viewer is getting a small peak into the life of a woman they have never, and most likely will never meet.
