Excerpt from Artist’s Statement: In the drawing, the two foreground characters are juxtaposed with the pile of “produced” bodies in the background of the image. The suggested narrative is that of individuals who rise from the rubble and embrace love and empathy and celebrate their individuality and freedom. The drawing is a combination of different stylistic approaches emphasizing not only the figures but also the manner in which they are created.
