Two Things Happening at the Same Time is a continuation of Rashawn Griffin's investigation into materiality, drawing, and identity. Starting by re-imagining the "Griffin" family tartan in new and saturated colors, the image was created in the lithographic medium, each plate hand rendered and hand printed on a direct pressure lithographic press, composing the final image. With additionally added hand elements, such as plastic eyes, thread embossment, sewn elements, and Chine collé, this pattern is abstractly collaged, weaved, and manipulated into portraiture, both masking and revealing identity in two ways at once.
