Image Statement: "Red Notebook" emerged from an installation called "Here's to the Red, White and Blue", a response to the conflicted and decidedly Un-united response of the United States to the COVID-19 pandemic. Containing intensely textured, tensely contrasting materials, it stands alone as a bookish invitation to explore the mysteries of the body, the soul, and a confounding chapter in the story of a nation.
