So Much Hope, 2019, papers, photograph, thread, approximately 7 x 5 1/2 inches.

So Much Hope was made from a photograph of a portrait of my Uncle Stanna. As a child, he was much beloved by the family as the only boy. He was so adorable and sweet. However, as he grew, he became depressed and then an alcoholic which destroyed him. I am paying homage to him as a child, pure and untainted by suffering.
