Black and White woodblock print interpretation of a Norman Rockwell Coca-Cola advertisement by Kristin Powers Nowlin.

For the past twenty years, my work has dealt with issues of race and gender. I explore issues of marginalized subcultures, stereotypes, and coded language. The work challenges the way American culture perceives and judges groups of people, as well as the way groups of people interact with one another. While some pieces intentionally and consciously use stereotypes as a critique of their absurdity, others explore the issues through personal narratives.
