Blind Portraits

The visiting artists program at SAIC is really special. During the summer, we had two artist lectures per week and we got to be more involved with 3 of those artists over the course of the residency. We presented on one artist (as a gift to them), had a group critique with another, and had a one-on-one studio visit with the last. Whether I like the artists’ work (and/or personalities) or not, I learn so much from each lecture and each interaction. This summer, I did my presentation on Rodney McMillian, had a group critique with Eileen Myles, and received a studio visit from Alejandro Cesarco.

I’ve started to make blind contour drawings of each artist during their lecture:

“I was tired of pretending for the sake of others that I would survive. I became preoccupied with the burdens that sick people bear on behalf of those around them who are well.”
