Georgia Blues

Georgia Blues: a visual memoir of growing up in the Deep South.

Walking down a street in Boston I saw a sign stenciled on the sidewalk. It read: NO MORE PRISONS. The sign made me remember. When I returned to the studio I drew a chain. The chain is a symbol of my childhood.

Flannery O’Connor said anyone who survives a Southern childhood will have enough material to write about for the rest of her life.

I feel paper to be the appropriate material, for paper is fragile, ephemeral... like memory.
