[ID: A composite collage. 4 vertically oriented, thinly cropped headshot images of Elisabeth Motley, x, Cory Nakasue, and David Lee Sierra align in consecutive succession along 5 rows, the top and the bottom rows bleeding off the image's borders, unseen, the sequence unfinished. Each artist is in moody, dramatic, or otherwise dynamic poses and energies, all characterized by tones of brown, cream, deep reds, washed-yet-dark blue-greens, and the play between light and dark in excessive multiplicity.]
