Relief 
2012
Embossed paper
24" x 18"

The word "weep" is embossed into the paper vertically and horizontally. The four E's overlap in the center of the image, forming a graphic shape that is reminiscent of a Greek cross or plus sign. Thus weeping, a act that is reductive (because tears are shed) and associated with negative emotions, takes on a positive, additive form. The idea of relief is embodied.
