Untold Stories

Untold Stories (2014) is a series of mixed-media drawings showcasing the absurd, the folkloric, the banal and the taboo. Each piece is meant to be read as a contained, stand-alone narrative, which in situ is in conversation with another narrative. Some works included in the series are presented as diptychs and triptychs, combining image with text. The inclusion of text is not supplementary to the image, but instead serves as a tentative juxtaposition, illustrating how text can be as evasive as an image when the panels are two sides of the same story or theme. In sum, Untold Stories presents a variety of narratives that are simultaneously truthful and tangible as they are suspect and elusive in content and context. 

The series exhibition for Untold Stories opened at the Contemporary Art Museum of St. Louis on the 16th of January 2015 on view until the 28th of February.
