According to research, 94 people are directly affected by the homicide of one individual. Each of these images represents one of those 94. According to phillypolice.com, there have been 1,985 murders in Philadelphia in the past five years. The number grows every day.
I worked with young people at the Covenant House, a shelter facility for homeless youth, in Kensington to create imagery that approaches the subject of such devastating loss. The resulting 94 paintings can be seen below.
