Where We Exit, 2007
Serigraph, Ed. 66

This print features an eight panel comic sequence of a young girl and a horse driving through Los Angeles. They speak in image balloons, riddled with anxiety, about the war in Iraq, Big Oil, environmental devastation, and personal health. The print, though whimsical in its articulation, conveys a personal and collective sense of unease and defeat in response to the issues that ail and trouble the nation.
