  • 2010 {Failed} Artist Statement

    Inevitably, projects begin to intersect.  In the midst of the work that I continue to work on, my life dictates the work that I perform and execute.  In 2007 my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer. My work took a back seat.  There was a most evident threat: cancer, our lives, [...]

    This is the {Last { and }First} Day of My Life.

    a void is in fact a space of lacking

    Have we Failed {hope} or has {hope} Failed us?

    [HOPE - Despair] 2 = [Situation]3 / [(Contentment /Loss - Gains) * Self esteem ]

    Darkness {failed light}

    It is not the darkness that I am afraid of
    it is living in the darkness forever
    the darkness is happy to have me
    and I am happy to have it
    the light is the miser I can never negotiate
    I will never hold on long enough to make it so
    there is nothing I can say to take back [...]

    My meter is broken {couplets are broken} I Failed the Poem

    My skin pressed up against your flesh
    as if we are of the same mind and desire
    Keep the doubts and fears to the left of right
    I just can’t be here with you tonight

    There are better things than this
    my life lit up with a reset
    and its like a reject button
    like a factory line production

    I’d like [...]

    Failed Poems {failure is a success}

    Odd, failing is, failing was, failing will be.

    I’ve had my moments of completion… Last weekend I was so close to smashing the assembled boxes and plexi boxes. Not that I am displeased with my results–granted I am not happy with the results, they could be better–but I sense the fact that the pieces [...]

    Failed Poems Project {waiting}

    Until the plexiglas comes in… I feel like I am at a standstill.  Which really isn’t all that true.  I guess I don’t feel that the Boxes are all that successful, which is too bad since they were the original focus of this whole project.  Now they have taken a back seat to the plexi [...]

    Day 5: Failed Poems Project {contemplation}

    I’ve talked with another artist friend about this project and he suggested that I look at Art Brut.  Although I have had training, I still feel lost in a world that seems to have no place for me.  So the question remains, why do I even bother?  Because at a certain point it comes down [...]

    Day 5: Failed Poems Project

    Don’t have much time.  But this is what I got done….

    This is a little Pinktober idea… “Breast Cancer Gas mask…. 1/2 of 1% of the sale of this item will go to some charity that helps breast cancer…. with a maximum of $50.00…. buy it today and feel like you are doing something!
    The photo [...]

    Day 4: Failed Poems Project

    Here’s a pic of the inside of box 1.  I am not sure if I am happy with it but I am sick of this box and I have moved on to the next box.  Maybe I will come back and rework this box later.  For some reason, titles seem pretty worthless right now.

    Above are [...]
