Mixed media on archival paper, framed
16.5 x 22 inches each (4 pcs.)
XOXO is a drawing made using sepia and graphite, lead, charcoal, and ink on archival paper. The four-piece 16.5 x 22 inches artwork features a code of endearment in digital messaging that means hugs and kisses —the letters X and O (Kiss 1, Hug 1, Kiss 2, Hug 2) rendered in detailed patterns, textures, and tones of black. Using a style that is in contrast of his signature bright-colored paintings, Nasser strives to emphasize the gravity of reminding everyone about our finest human traits.
What of being human? “While troubles in our society are rising in these times and people are losing cool between each other's differences, we need to be reminded of love, faith, understanding, and respect.”
