ARTIST CV

Looking at historical tragedies- from the Hitler Youth to the child soldiers of the Congo- children are always the first victims of human atrocities. Children are the least educated- and therefore the easiest to manipulate. Painting their bodies very simply, almost like hand puppets, emphasizes the complete control over them. I used pictures from Toul Sleng to create portraits with aspects of caricature.
