New Paintings 8.17
These works are presented without scale – they exist in this state, as memory. They can be reproduced or the originals can be viewed. I’m not sure what value I must consider them to have – to self-promote, to ask people to care. Is wanting approval an act of dependence? Is considering the paintings part of my spirit an act of faith? Is wanting to be paid for them, an act of betrayal? They exist, I exist, I proved to myself that I would be a painter despite great pain. I will continue painting. This is my work.
