      Hauntingly beautiful... they are almost looking at me with eyes saying, "Here. No you carry her."

      Beautiful! His work reminds me of the American realist artist, Andrew Wyeth. ThankYou for sharing this!

    In Carry Me, Tim Lowly’s daughter Temma is held by six of his drawing students. He says: “Fundamentally I want students to have an opportunity to encounter people we’re often told to avoid. My desire is to make present and visible people who have been culturally marginalized, people who many view as profoundly ‘other’ than their own experience of what it means to be human.”
