Recent Experiments

We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.
 – T.S. Eliot

I’m sitting here trying to put into words why my work has changed direction. It started as a whisper. A subtle stream of uncertainty that continuously challenged me. Eventually it boiled over into a crisis. I began to lose sight of why I was making work in the first place.

I became blocked and didn’t make anything for a long time. In order to move forward, I had to grant myself permission to explore (or else, possibly, self-implode).

Conflicting feelings of trepidation and excitement surround an uncertain destination, and yet I have never felt more confident that I am on the right path
