This event has ended.

To be sad is to be in sync with humanity. I can’t think of anything worse than quoting Nietzsche in a press release in 2020, so I’ll paraphrase: The truth of life cuts so deep that we need art as a salve. I’ve been an artist for decades, but I’m only now beginning to believe in those words. Quarantine has made my regular modes of expression unfeasible, so I began to draw, on paper, the invasive yet welcome images that sneak into my head. Come visit me in the gallery so we can make meaning and decipher these alien drawings and share the consolations I’ve discovered. I’ll be there every day of the exhibition.
I’ve missed seeing you.
