About the show from the artist:
Begin again is the theme of what I call «my life.”
I wake up in the morning and sit on the edge of the bed to know this body is breathing — new breaths — each one. Stagnation has no hope in this light. Then I forget.
Begin again. Like any sane human, I delighted in art as a child and still seek the new hatching crack of each unknown moment explored with a paintbrush.
Begin again: This show features old art that I have revisited and had tea with, re-played-with, renewed — me refreshed in the process. This process invites what is already alive in me to be reborn. There are prints that have been painted and revitalized, drawings reorganized, me dismantled and re-mantled, series upon series of lightbirds uncaged by the sacred guffaw that slaps the face of my sleepwalking, and I suddenly hear springtime peepers singing at the edge of a creek in rural Ohio. (Ok, that last part might be a tall order to put on canvas and hang at the show — but, hey…where’s that paintbrush?)
