Sadie Barnette’s multimedia practice often highlights the ties between the aesthetic, the personal, and the political. In this series of drawings, texts in different typographical styles describe her relationship to various family members. Barnette's drawings underscore that her artistic experimentation is grounded in knowledge she learned as a daughter, sister, granddaughter, and niece.
