Claudia Bicen “Thoughts in Passing” [EOL in Art 201]

Claudia Bicen is interested in how death informs views on life.  She drew nine life-size graphite pencil portraits of hospice patients in “Thoughts in Passing.”

One of these, a portrait of Jenny Miller, just won the National Portrait Gallery’s Outwin Boochever competition.  The words on the layered glassine paper that make up Miller’s clothing tell her story in her own words.
