  • Verbal Description: This print is one of three in a series of portraits, each showing a different perspective of the same figure on a nickel-colored background. The figure is shown from the chest up. He has black skin that is peppered with small, white clusters of linear patterns, resembling the texture of muscle fibers. He presents male, with short, tightly curled black hair and closely cropped facial hair along his chin. The viewer’s perspective is slightly above the figure, looking down at his head. He is positioned at an angle, with his left shoulder cut off and the top of his head reaching about two-thirds of the way up the composition. He has a neutral expression and stare straight ahead, facing the bottom left corner. The only color comes from his thin, crimson necklace that ends beneath his shirt and the gold leaf that outlines his white, ribbed, scooped tank top.

  • Verbal Description: This print is one of three in a series of portraits, each showing a different perspective of the same figure on a nickel-colored background. The figure is shown from the chest up, and the composition is cropped at his shoulders, so his arms are not visible. He has black skin that is peppered with small, white clusters of linear patterns, resembling the texture of muscle fibers. He presents male, with short, tightly curled black hair and closely cropped facial hair along their chin. His black eyes peer slightly to the right of the viewer. He appears calm and his neutral mouth is slightly agape. The only color comes from his thin, crimson necklace that ends beneath his shirt and the gold leaf outlining his white, ribbed, scooped tank top.

Du jaroj da seksa perforto kontrau virinaj Egiptaj manifestaciantoj, kaj jam ni portas trancilojn en la stratoj. Ili volas nin resti en niaj hejmoj, sed ni ..os! Neniam! Bandoj da krimuloj de brutuloj strio ni nuda. Ili venkis, palp kaj seksperfort ni. Aj, Egiptio! Devas ne esti libereco sen la libera la virinaro!

  • Verbal Description: This artwork depicts a dark gray deconstructed garment, laid out flat, on a manila-colored background. The whole work is on lightly grided paper and the artist has filled in each individual square with graphite to create the garment shapes, darkening the spaces where the shapes of the garment overlap, giving the effect of a woven or knitted texture. The body of the garment is centered and quite long, reaching from the top to the bottom of the composition. The way the neckline and shoulders are shaped, the body resembles the shape of a rook in chess. The sleeves look like two keystones symmetrically perched on either shoulder. They only reach about midway down the body, indicating that this may be a dress or tunic. A white floral pattern, similar to one you may see on a lace doily, graces each garment layer. Two distinct patterns are on each of the shoulders, and then six patterns are slightly offset across the chest.
