Alone in the Crowd

by: Étienne Gagné, Boucherville, Quebec, Canada

They look at you, they see a freak; they look in you, they see a FRIEND.

Artist Statement

As an artist, when you think about embracing our differences as a theme, you usually think of art about peace, friendship, and the nice aspects of acceptance. My artwork, however, speaks to those who sit alone in a crowd where people look at you funny because you look different, or you can’t get a job because of the clothes you wear. The world can sometimes feel cold if you are different.
