UNLV graduate student Noelle Garcia lost her estranged father to cancer when she was 13. Her memories of him fading, she paints him how she remembers him -- out of focus. Her art is created mostly from old family photos. The people she paints have no faces or are missing facial features, representing a lack of identity.
