This month, as soon as you walked through those iconic glass doors of dk Gallery, you would stop in your tracks. Immediately upon entering are 49 faces and countless eyes (as some portraits have third and even fourth and fifth eyes) staring back at you. This installation is titled, “It Could Be You,” and it’s meant to raise awareness for sexual assault victims and victims of sexual and domestic abuse. The faces capture every combination of color and expression and range from haunting to gory to tranquil to joyful. Each face has its own story to tell, its own wound to heal, its own pain to give voice to. Each face belongs with the other, and each face belongs to everyone because… It could be you.
