2000 ushered in an era of immediate visibility and messaging, that cultivated an idealized social identity while destroying ones personal identity. who we are isn't as important as how we appear. society greatly encourages a detachment from the self in order to obtain public perfection. sans entre nous' quadrigeminal collection visually dialogues identity struggles depicted through our unconscious sensory reactions. the innovative methodologies of intaglio-type printmaking magnify the subject in depth and texture. by virtue of imagery and medium, sans entre nous succeeds in exemplifying the need for self acceptance.
