Title: The Jerome Project
Medium: Asphalt Paper and Chalk
In Asphalt and Chalk, Kaphar continues The Jerome Project by drawing composite portraits of multiple Jeromes with chalk on asphalt paper. As he layers the contours and features of each face, one becomes disoriented as each individual begins to bleed into the next. This series represents a community, specifically of African-American men who are statistically overrepresented in our nation’s prison population and the criminal justice system.
