The “Grawlix” show is done and we all had a great time with it. A video will be up shortly but for now here are some shot of my installation from the show followed by card information and artist statement.
I Am Not Saddened With My Wasted Youth Or My Impotent Body Unable To Escape
Wood, glass, steel, plexi-glass, Blaptica dubia cockroaches, water, dirt, and other items from youth
Made possible with contributions from Anthony Mauricio and Carly Sorge.
This was the easiest prison to escape. Put in there by family for their own good. The smell of chalk dust, blinders of matte black, and muffled hums. This world was mine for years as a child to curb my restlessness.
The idea was to isolate/dampen the senses. Without outside distractions you could focus and learn better. The truth was it trapped me with my mind alone. It was the real enemy not the outside world. The things I learned from this was not found in the books I was given.
