Wars and persecution have driven more than 65 million people from their homes, according to the United Nations, more than at any other time in history. The terrible plight of so many among us inspired the Fleeing Across Continents series. These monotypes feature abstract human shapes, reflecting a tormented, barrier-laden journey, and solvent transfers of newspaper photographs.
