2016 and Upcoming
Feb., 2016 Augusta Savage Gallery, “ I Breathe With You”, MA
Lately there has been much senseless bloodshed over an age old prejudice that simply won’t go away. “I can’t breathe” were the last words of Eric Garner when put in chokehold by NYPD. Cops across the country are being shot down randomly. Time to address the prejudice and recognize that the color of blood is always red. Color Vision is a group of 4 canvases. Each rendered in Ishihara vision chart style inscribed with words that every person feels and can identify with. “I have a Dream” consists of two dream catchers, each with a diagram of a cross section of a blood cell.

Flight of the Unicorn and the rest of the works in this series are a reflection on childhood as a time of innocence and possibilities.

Primal Colors: performance art digital photo and animation
“Stay hungry, stay foolish”, the celebrated words of Steve Jobs is the basis of the series of images. They are an expression of a visceral state stripped of acquired emblems of validation. The trusted camera lens, my own body and the surroundings are ingredients of these works. Impermanent and in a state of flux, these works catch a thought cast them into a visual vocabulary and move on to the next thought. These works do not bear the burden of having to deliver a weighty subject matter for a high brow jury – simply a way to embrace a state, situation, place, people, politics without roots and obligations.
