Mary Parks Washington
Erik
1999
collage

The collage is in honor of Mary Washingtons son Erik who died in an automobile accident. She writes, This is my son. This is a collage. The shirt is of the Tuskegee Airman. His father was a pilot with the 332nd. You cant see in the slide but the painting is full of notes, telephone numbers. Erik always wrote numbers on pieces of paper and stuck them in places. He knew where they were. He never used the address/telephone book I gave him for Christmas.
