A LOT OF YOUR PIECES ARE PRETTY STARKLY BLACK-AND-WHITE AND HAVE A REALLY DISTINCT HEAVINESS. YOU'RE USING A LOT MORE COLOR IN THESE NEW ONES, HOWEVER, AND IT SEEMS TO BE OPENING THINGS UP. PARTICULARLY IN "MOVING SEASON," WHICH HAS A REALLY SHARP SUNSET-Y RED AND A BLUE GRAFFITI TAG. WHAT'S YOUR LINE OF THINKING BEHIND THE COLOR? With the introduction of color into the prints, I wanted to create a more narrative and intimate setting for the viewer to feel like they could breathe amongst the chaos that otherwise surrounds them in my work. In "Moving Season," the figure in the image is carrying his to-do list in the form of the boxes he's carrying.
