Graphite drawings on mylar
monument n. (L. monere, rewind)
something set up to keep alive the memory
of a person or event
This collection of scenes of violent crimes comes from television news broadcasts, newspapers, as well as my own experiences. For each drawing there was a victim of violence. Hit and run, rape, mugging, murder, hate crimes, child abuse, suicide, etc.
I chose the mylar because of its permanence. It is plastic: it is here forever. The mylar is skin, a transparent scar. We can see through it to the wound it covers and describes.
I am the pencil. I view and create the space. I document the buildings and areas as monuments to the violence they have witnessed.
The drawings become my x-rays to show the structure of the scenes. They are innocent spaces, haunted by their recent pasts. Although they look the same, they never will be.
