About this Image:
Individual Story II is a ten run, eleven color lithograph printed from stone and plates. Nam drew with litho crayons, a rapidiograph pen, and transparent flats to create the image. The central scene is a blending of the basketball hoop in his back yard with the schoolyard of PS 58 in Brooklyn, NY. The empty chairs, lined up along the foul line and awaiting the “free throw”, place adult pressures on children where they germinate. Individual Story II takes a critical look at American culture through the eyes of a Korean artist and father as he watches the re-shaping of his daughter’s native cultural identity as they struggle to succeed.
