The Gao Family.

Tracy Gao approached me in 2021 to create a portrait of her family: herself, her sister, mother, father, maternal and paternal grandparents. It was a tremendous honor to work with them and challenge myself to create this piece, the scale of which I had not attempted before. 

Completed: July 2022. 

Measures: 20 x 30 inches.

Materials: graphite, chalk pastel, eyeshadow, velvet, paper.

These images are some snapshots of the year-long process.
