Littlefield: FAILURES: ART RECEPTION - The “Failure” series is interested in aspects of self we deem as “failed” or “no good.” Ironically, they are only subjective judgments and what seems “bad” can be an asset, a lightness of being, and can fickly shift in a moment’s time anyway. The project started as a study of multiple personalities of sorts, ‘self-portraits’ of each one.
