SAME AS IT NEVER WAS
Latex, Enamel, Acrylic on Found board collage “Where Am I Now?” feels more complicated to answer in mid-2018 than it has in awhile. I’ve had to close a lot of doors recently trying to open possibilities. Accept a series of defeats in order to start finding success again. This piece is a structured fracture, sadly humorous, new and old, sweet and sour. This isn’t an approach I’ve attempted before, both literally and metaphorically.
