AMERICAN EMPRESS: Credit for the Empire's Troubled Royalty

Press Release (PDF)

About this series: In 14 mixed-media paintings, contemporary pop culture figures are transformed into credit card portraits that speak to loss, social stigma, mental illness, addiction and personal crisis. They serve as a reminder that one's true nature is never really lost.
