Bear Trap!, 2016, was created from one of those late night visions that just appear, fully formed, when the info commercial on the tv starts blurring in that moment between awake and asleep. A dark vision that features the childhood teddy bear as bait in a simple box trap. What does it mean? Why is the ruler used as the trap support? Is the bear there voluntarily? Or, is there some other intent? 12×24, Dye Sublimation on Aluminum.
Water Balloons! 2016, starts the conversation with questions about gravity, purity and plastics. Where can we take our conversation from there? 16x24, Dye Sublimation on Aluminum.
