Oh boy! What can I say about me that hasn't already been said in a drunken rant by an ex girlfriend! Well, This space is for my non-art. It is a place where I will store my sarcasm, disillusionment, and frustrations with the art world. But the more I do it, the more I start to see the humor in it. As I state on my Instagram account over and over again, Art has become non-art more than ever before in history. This may be a good thing, to blur the lines between what art is and what art isn't. Art is also often referred by my as F'art - as in fake (pretense), false (misunderstood), stinky (pretentious). 

I went from creating photographs to abstract paintings to mixed media creations and now to conceptual installations. This journey took place organically but also during Covid times it become more intellectual and more of a search for meaning. Now, I am at a state of purgatory (who isn't right?) where I feel paralyzed to "make" "art" in a world where invisible statues, duct tape-bananas, robot sculptures are an everyday occurrence. So, I play with what I'm given, I too make sculptures out of the souls of toilet paper, I too can duct tape my reactions to pretentious art on walls, I too can create invisible art (although arguably I was already doing that given than no one ever really saw my work anyway).

The biggest discovery of my career has been this, I am not making art for sale. I do not want to sell my art. I have seen what sold art endures and I wouldn't send my babies into that hell. A hell where matching rugs determine its placement in a condo, attics tell ghostly stories to stored artworks and scar them for life, where an artwork can be shred into pieces, figuratively or literally, and be sold like a commodity or worse an NFT. My art is NOT FOR SALE ... but if I must, you can by the NOT FOR SALE sign that is in the foreground of all my work.
