UN-HOUSED mixed media portrait

Vintage maps and papers, rich with the history of the past are the perfect material for creating this mixed media portrait. They invite the viewer to imagine the story of this human, un-housed, like so many in our communities. Glimpses of hidden words and images suggest the complexity of his struggles and challenges. The orange paint wraps around him with community support and connection. Thank you to all those working on solutions to this crisis.
