sketch 001
(lessons in transparency)

sketch 001 or lessons in transparency, came out of a desire to explore the possible meanings in transparency.  Largely motivated by my own attraction to transparent textiles, papers, etc.  It also came about in the time of the 2016 election, in which alternative facts became the hot ticket. As each layer of tracing paper is added the bottom TRANSPARENCY is obscured and the word and concept of transparency is further muddled.
