The Ribbon Series genesis was the “Support our Troops” ribbon-shaped car magnets that became ubiquitous during the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003. As the symbol was adopted for other causes and became cultural shorthand, I began tracing and experimenting with various designs using the ribbon shape to create mixed media paintings and installations.
