Precariat: An Investigation of Income Inequality
SFAI Equality Justice Artist-in-Resident (2017)
In 2017, I was accepted into the SFAI Equal Justice Artist-in-Residency at Santa Fe Art Institute. At the time, I was working full time as an assistant branch manager at a bank and was contemplating income inequality and learning more about a new social class called the precariat. I took the time during the residency to use drawings as a form of note taking as I listened to books and lectures on socio-economic theories and people's stories of how our society treated them. I drew my friend's portrait, as a single mother to capitalize on the gender inequalities for single mothers, which hit home for me as a child of a single parent.
