About this Image:
Individual Story I is an eight run, ten-color lithograph printed from stones and plates. Nam utilized a variety of drawing techniques and materials to create this image, namely crayons, maniere noire, blends, and transparent flats. Individual Story I is part of a series of images that portray the specific challenges Nam has faced as an Asian artist in middle America. Nam struggles with the pressures of assimilation and often sees his own struggles mirrored in his daughter’s daily experiences. Individual Story I speaks of reluctant ears, silent screams, and distant memories interwoven with the American dream.
