Art I Fact
To begin this piece, I stepped back and observed myself as a relic of human existence. After completing it, I found myself in the middle of two forces that we are taught oppose one another. In so doing, I discovered they are not opposing after all.
This piece comes from my manuscript, an unnarrated memoir. It is my unnarrated memoir, but when you entertain a piece from that manuscript, interact with it, have experiences with it, it become your unnarrated memoir. It is an opaque mirror that reflects a story of you. And every time you glimpse it, you might, like me, find that your memoir changes as the stream of life continues to flow through you.
To produce these pieces, I created a “giant typewriter” enlarging my old Smith&Corona typewriter symbols several times over and burning them onto silk screens. Each symbol is inked individually onto the canvas. I consider this art an ode to type and paper as well as to the fantastic nature of our existence.
