Unfinished Disorder

Beadwork

“Unfinished Disorder” recognizes those individuals who have been murdered and those still missing. The frame represents those individuals’ families and what they go through when their loved one is lost to the epidemic of MMIP. Everything on this piece has a meaning, even the way it is placed on the canvas is significant.
