Moments into drawings: Momentum Tulsa Artist Brian Dunn

Brian Dunn, Norman

Laura Reese: What is your concept and inspiration for this piece in Momentum?
Brian Dunn: The content of sometimes girls from New Jersey puke in garbage cans comes from a photo I took while waiting on the PATCO train back to my parents house. Scenes like this play out often and I felt like that moment needed to become a drawing.

Please explain the technique and/or process you used to create this work.
The medium that this piece is produced with is called lithography. It is a discipline of printmaking that functions under the scientific fact that oil and water don't mix.

Where else can the audience see your work?
