"Sheeted Figure on Couch with Book" Appears in Dunsmuir, CA

One of my new works, Sheeted Figure on Couch with Book, has been selected for Between the Covers: Art Inspired by Books, an exhibition being held at the Siskiyou Arts Museum in Dunsmuir, CA until October 2, 2016.  

I wrote the following statement about the image: 

The sheeted figure resists the camera of our culture by literally taking cover. He finds comfort in books for they are objects which resemble his own inner-outer nature. He knows that we are so much more than how we appear.

The work has also been mentioned in the Record Searchlight: Latest show invites viewers to go ‘Between the Covers.'
