Artist Statement

This exhibition represents critique of reality and the need for solidarity. Tension between the two isnt a matter of reconciliation. Art has never been just a well-behaved child affirming the best in all things, rather it agitates "the good": prove your value.

The irony of these images is complicit in their divisiveness by calling out bigotry. One way or another, someone feels offended, defensive, or personally indicted. Everyone has a right to their anger; doing something is a moral, ethical, legal matter. For the struggling classes, one mortgage, tuition, childcare payment away from disaster, solidarity asks: "would you rather be angry and powerless or powerfully equal?" If solidarity can change, recreate reality, then my art is a solidarity of laughing while crying out loud with everyone.
