Artist Statement

This series

. 

This series of charcoal drawings focuses on the discourse that takes place between me and the work at hand.  Many diverse thoughts surface as I'm working and instead of ignoring them I write them down.  I’m fascinated by the way the drawings talk to one another when viewed as a grouping and how they communicate, as the dialogue expands, to suggest a panoramic view of human interactions that in reality simply cannot be contained, resolved or ever completed as such.  This dialectic approach continues to feed and refresh the interaction and reflects upon the process of making art itself. 

Artist Bio / CV

he remembers trying to escape his own backyard  

the first fight that he won

the other fights that he won  the first time he hit a baseball straight up into the air and it landed right on top of his head and it made him cry like a fucking baby running across the front lawns of every house on the way home from school

and thinking that he was really flying a few feet off the ground 

talking to the girls next door on  hot summer nights through his open bedroom window

pulling down his pants in front of her behind the garage and a neighbor saw him

when he and that other boy were caught sticking twigs into each others ass

getting a stick shoved into

the back of his mouth while sword fighting

if you hang from the limb of a

tree and pump your knees at the

trunk it will make

you shoot white shit out of your dick and it feels good

that this also works while hanging from a closet shelf although your pumping

knees will leave blue

marks on the wall from your jeans

the same thing occurring while shinnying up a pole on

the play ground or a rope

to the ceiling in gym

class his arms got strong by doing this the same thing happens if you work it

with your hand

comparing boners

spearing frogs with a screwdriver duct

taped to an old golf club shaft

throwing a snow ball grenade loaded with a lit firecracker and watching it

explode and shower over

their little heads

feeling her tits for the first time

lapping at her tits like a fucking dog

firing tennisballs hundreds of feet into the air through duct taped cans ignited with a wooden match

and lighter fluid wuuuumpphh

running at full speed and jumping to the top of a four foot high cyclone fence

stealing whiskey in a coke bottle from your own home or a neighbors garage

drinking beer in trees and smoking dope

dropping a few pills

throwing them back with some more beer

eating pussy in a hatchback with her ass pressed to the rear window and the

back of her head thumping against the same window as she gives a blow job

all the wonders of youth that made him what he is

that he was destined for greatness.
