 I love exploring issues of identity and diversity. In this series I riffed on the same kind of process that I’ve explored numerous times before. I drew similar but not identical portraits which I then I divided and cut into similar but not identical rectangular shapes. I then mixed up the rectangles and reassembled them into new portraits which accounts for their rather distorted shapes and dissonant features. Then I added color to the portraits divided each face into four parts that I cut apart once again. After reshuffling the components I reassembled them into new portraits that once again are different yet still all related to each other, just like siblings in families, from one generation to another.
