First 3 pieces for thesis- this weeks theme was "urban growth/decay". I decided to approach it from two different perspectives- how do we preserve areas we want...and how do we change those we don't. Here we have The Battle of Northpoint and modern day Ft. Howard now a national park- a preserved piece of history. I built a narrative with the imagery of past meets present.

urbanblight

This piece deals with the process of gentrification/urban blight. I felt the best way to approach this subject was by doing a piece that was about the emotional response that I have to the words associated with that process.

A piece about stoop cleaning

famouswomen2

A portrait of some famous women from Baltimore: Billie Holiday, Anna Farris, Mildred Dunnock, Jada Pinkett Smith, Parker Posey, DJ K-Swift, and Nancy Pelosi- I exaggerated their features a little to create a kind of caricature

bethlehem steel

This piece is about Bethlehem Steel- a still mill which at it's peak employed about 35,000 Baltimoreans. They mill is now under new management and employs less than 8,000. My great uncle is a former employee- and there are very few people I know/knew growing up who didn't have a relative working at the mill.
