Album Description
"Tales" is an allegorical series of 32 paintings in which I use the character Pinocchio to tell a story about a boy who becomes addicted to heroin. The images chronicle the devastating effects of heroin addiction on Pinocchio's life and his attempts to kick his habit and put his life back in order. These images are the basis for my bilingual (English/Spanish) book and video, "Tales: A Cautionary Story about Heroin Addiction."
