A Soldier Emerges
I wanted to express the metamorphosis from civilian to soldier. After many fits and starts, I finally determined that the essence of the change is the breaking down of the civilian life and the subsequent building up of the military one (with it's requisite mores, rites, hierarchies, and language).The denim background represents the civilian life, the worn areas are where it's breaking down. On top of that is a soldier created from "building blocks." See more on the blog.
