Staff Selections Exhibition:
Every aspect of this piece contributes to the sense of power we see in the speaker and his words: the line quality, the composition and use of negative space, and the man’s posture. It isn’t clear if the speaker’s message is disseminating information or misinformation, and the mystery contributes to the piece. -Rebecca
