My art is often a reaction to and reflection of the world around me, good bad and ugly. Like so many I have been outraged and horrified by events in recent history locally nationally and globally, finding focus, purpose and power in making art that raises awareness and starts conversations about issues that are far too often marginalized and misunderstood:
Gun violence and the loss of young lives, Police brutality, the murder of civilians and the role of police in the society, conflicts and casualties, systems of oppression. These are some of the things I try to make sense of or speak on with my work.
Join me at the Lucy Parsons Center Bookstore in Hyde Square JP for Jamaica Plain Open Studios 2014. I will be showing work, giving out stickers, (maybe even doing a demo) and hanging out talking about art or whatever else.
Please peruse the selection of radical reading material LPC has to offer as well.
