Artist Statement, 2020:
When I make art, I cut my nails short so as to not scratch a god since they are nearby in the form of circles, lines, and chants, all the souvenirs sold in Vatican City, products of the space between Adam’s and God’s fingers in that Michelangelo ceiling painting. Accidents are more likely with long fingernails when transporting a bomb, an idea, above the sacred negative space of a canvas or paper. But, once it’s dropped, the violence becomes a gentle answer, like a priestess in ancient Greece sacrificing the offered goat, relaying hope after reading its insides. Those guts, however, all have the same construction, the same vein of collective unconscious I so often apply to my art—mythology, literature, and other breeds of story. These narratives allow us to find each other throughout time. At the end of the year the shoulder blade of Sagittarius has one job, and it isn’t aim—yet here goes the arrow, his fingernails kissed by the fletching as it departs the bow. Not unlike that arrow, my art tends to find its way, landing in the story of now.
