To understand something as complex as the American experience of war in Iraq and Afghanistan it is useful to listen to many perspectives.
The 100 Faces exhibition shows a cross-section of Americans who went to these wars between 2001 and 2014. Each person met the artist and was asked to say something about themselves. They could say whatever they wanted. The statement they provided and their bio represents that moment in their personal history.
Click here “Portrait Gallery” to see their portraits and words.
Ten posthumous portraits are included in the 100 Faces project. For these portraits, the families worked with the artist and chose the words which accompany the paintings. The exhibition is a record of a specific moment in time. It was created while the wars were ongoing, between 2005 and 2014. Many of the people pictured went back to the war zones after their portraits were done. Five of the people pictured are civilians who traveled to the war zones in non-military capacities.
