Earth Avengers (2017-2021)
These days I’m thinking more and more about the earth, about running out of time, about all that we stand to lose. And these thoughts are showing up in the work. There are now petals and branches emerging, creature-like limbs and riverbeds, stretched skin over rib cages or perhaps the skin-like webbing between the veins of a leaf. Maybe I’m trying to make an army of earth avengers or creature-shaped prayers. Whatever it is that I’m building, it is clearly still an elaborate fantasy, one in which I am still hiding in my studio, still thinking I am the forger of a stockpile of armor fit for an uprising.
