THE GIFT OF THE MAGI
Featured in “Beautiful Losers” exhibition
April 2017, SVA Chelsea Gallery, New York, NY
Excerpts from my picture-book adaptation of O. Henry’s short story of the same title.
The Gift of the Magi explores the often-overlooked beauty that accompanies loss. It narrates the tale of a couple’s mad scramble to find the perfect Christmas gifts for each other, the sacrifices made along the way, and the ironic results that follow.
It is human nature to seek out the familiar, and when it comes to Jim and Della, one doesn’t have to look too far.
Full project available on request.
