> DESCRIPTION

Many of these new sgraffito works (India ink on clayboard, incised) were begun or completed at the Border Art Residency in La Union, New Mexico. Writes Briggs: "My drawings became a means for me to reconcile, admit, and absorb the perplexing and harsh landscape along the border.  I alternated between periods of seclusion in my studio and excursions across the bridge to Juarez.  .... I visited the city's morgue, an asylum, a bar where murders were planned, a condominium where the killing was done. Moving back and forth, I began to draw my way through the spaces and boundaries of this territory."
