Octopus Painting

Octopus Painting

This Octopus Painting was created in 2013 and first appeared at Baltimore’s Area 405‘s Exhibition, House Dignified. It now lives on the west coast of North America.

“In House Dignified, artists Amanda Burnham, Margo Elsayd, Frank Perrelli, Jessica Braiterman, Kathryn Cornelius and Joshua Johnson use location as portraiture to communicate notions of family, community, conflict, identity, and re-gentrification. The exhibition was part of the Artscape 2013 Gallery Network and was on view in compliment to Romeo & Juliet.”
