SINCERELY, JACK
A multi-section work that collides the myth and history in Jack of the giant killing and water fetching variety and Abraham Lincoln's only grandson. These mythologized ‘everymen’ characters meld and viscerally separate as the reluctant hero meets the unrealized potential. With a sense of mourning and extinguished youth, American notions of work, success, and the male legacy are revealed through quotes, literature, and myths of ‘the common man.’
