There is an organic unfolding as I continue to research and respond to my social environment. 

The titles in this series are as much a part of the work as the visual.

The boards are wallpapered with the narrative reflecting the format in which they were researched.

The confines of the boards have become irrelevant. The work is leaving the page in the form of irregular edges, base, relief and fabric.

Becoming collage wall sculptures.

"WILL I LIVE TO BE 20?
Irregular shaped base relief collage

This collage was base Christopher Johnson true story.

Two days ago, while walking with my daughter from dance class, she asked me if I thought she would live to be 20. I was silent too long. I can't say exactly why. Was it because of the fear for my own life in present police state America? Was it the upcoming election? Was I silent too long because a 13 year old girl just asked me if I thought she would live to see 20? By the time I got the where with all to answer as to assure her of her future, she responded "I don't think I'm going to live to see 20. The world is already a bad place and both our presidential can- didates are bad people, but I believe Trump is going to win and it will be the end of America." My 13 year old daughter said that. My first responsibility as a father is to keep my daughter safe, to create a world worth leaving her as inheritance. In one statement my daughter told me that she doesn’t believe I can protect her and that the world as she knows it won’t be worth living in very soon.
