Thinking about biography in relation to history, I focused on my grandfather's life to create this body of work titled  "The Newburgh Papers"  that returned to drawing and writing in a more conventional manner.  After researching the squadrons to which he was attached in the Vietnam War, I hand wrote letters to dead soldiers as a way of connecting with him through them, implying my belief that they would  somehow be able to read them across time, place and the physical world itself.
