Tiny Portraits, Big Connections

Chris Haggqvist

 "Tiny Portraits, Big Connections is a work of community. I created one 4"x4" portrait every day for 100  days straight. My intention was to create some connection between my art  and the subjects; to create a community of people who may not be  related in normal life, but by having their portraits drawn, they become  part of a voluntary community.

I  hoped to create a new sense of belonging, and I do know in fact that  some of the participants met one another through the project. I'm glad  to present the portraits together as they are meant to be shown: to  display both the individuals and the collective community they have  become."
