Embrace is a graphite and Prismacolor drawing on paper with a section of electrical copper wiring superimposed. It is part of a series of works inspired by cardboard boxes laid out flat. Cardboard is able to morph into a container and then be deconstructed back to its original state. In this instance, we have two boxes, one inside the other, engaged in dialogue: The outside silver box, the cradle/hearth/family protecting the smaller gold box from the complications of the outside world lurking all around and up above.
