“Comic”

2018-19
Various sizes
Graphite on paper


"Comic" is a series of drawings that seek to examine and reframe the idealization of colonial American western expansion throughout the 19th and 20th centuries (eg. Manifest Destiny, "Winning the West") and into the present: Illustrating the discrepancies between the privileged collective history of the ‘insider’ vs. the exclusionary visual rhetoric often employed to alienate the ‘outsider’ experience.
