Featured Artwork

Marti Cormand, They Might Be Giants
Marti Cormand, They Might Be Giants (Triptych)

Marti Cormand

Through large scale pencil on paper drawings, Cormand reflects on the architectures of power. Cormand has recreated an image of a guard who at one time was posted at the massive bronze doors at the entrance of the National Archives in Washington, D.C. The archive houses the original copies of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. In Cormand’s They Might Be Giants (Triptych) the guard incrementally increases in scale until the doors are not so daunting.
