PORTFOLIO > Murder Ballads: 2013- gloves and works on paper

"Murder Ballads" 2014 at Packer Schopf Gallery Chicago

Murder Ballads are a folk song sub genre that trace their roots back to old English and Irish folk tunes. Sing-Song melodies swirl around lyrics that describe murder and betrayal. This contrast of sweet and brutal, gruesome and beautiful is what drew me to the music and inspired these pieces.
