My new work is completely different. I am painting people I care for in a way that takes caring.
BUTTS & CROTCHES
I'm the weird one for painting it, sure... But according to a study I read one time that I now can't find on google, male humans regardless of sexual orientation look at the genitals of other humans, regardless of gender or sexual orientation, as much as they do faces. Why has their been no great genital/ butt portrait painting?! Well, I sought to correct that. Get your mind out of the gutter! These paintings are sensitive and quiet. Like nylon shorts flapping in the wind.
SPORTS GAMES & ART GAMES
Paintings are bizarre spaces that work as both windows and objects, generating references and experiences. You cannot eat paintings and they aren’t fiscally responsible, but they embody the quirks of human psychology, including both the brilliance and ridiculousness of abstract thought. How many games of tic-tac-toe can be played? How many paintings can be made? It’s just semantics . . . and syntax. A lot comes out of nothing.
