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, [...]

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

Progress: Failed Poems Project, Day 1

First day…. It was tough to just get everything together.  I was able to put together 4 boxes. It took all day.  I realize that I am going to have write something for the inside of the boxes.  I also thought of dropping a clear piece of plexi through the middle of the box, perpendicular [...]
