  MARROW   (SOLD)   Mixed Media on Canvas 121.9 cm × 152.4 cm (48 in × 60 in)  From my solo art exhibition, " RISE " on 8.19.16 at  Fulton Market Kitchen .  When love and sex have become the disappointing answer to life’s riddle, the abandoned idea of a God, our search for immortality and the denial of our death. Are we then striving to turn our partners into Gods?  “When you confuse personal love and cosmic heroism you are bound to fail in both spheres. The impossibility of the heroism undermines the love, even if it is real. This double failure is what produces the sense of utter despair that we see in modern man… Love, then, is seen a religious problem.” — Ernest Becke,  The Denial of Death

Conquering My Kryptonite: Vulnerability

Last year, I joined #the100DayProject on Instagram with a goal to lean into the discomfort of vulnerability, and transition from viewing it as my weakness into my strength. I created my 100 paintings from “Negative Space” to focus on emotions, pain and experiences I hide or protect myself from. I titled my project, “#100VulnerableDays.” Taking cue from Dani Shapiro’s “Still Writing,” I chose to create for an audience of ONE: MYSELF. And my art gained an authenticity and life of its own. Here are those 100 paintings and others that emerge from this life-altering exercise.
