Close up of "Painful Pretty" assembled with a staple gun and glue.Wood that I find in the alley, or broken-down bookshelves. Metal sheeting off a retired food truck. Old protest flyers. Stencils on their last leg. Sketches unearthed from their books, otherwise forgotten. Layers of one life forever affected by the Chicago streets. In this post “Pretty Painful” and “Red Line.”
