Bang Bang

I have a couple prints from the Mojave Desert Artifacts series in the this group exhibition in Brooklyn. The opening is this Thursday, and it runs all month. Please stop in if you are in the area.

I was having a conversation earlier today about the need to get back to honest discussions about the real issues rather than letting ourselves get led along by people with ulterior motives, usually revolving around maintaining their own power or financial gain. As a country, we get out of the insular feedback loops that are creating larger and larger social chasms rather than stronger interconnected and personal communities.

The show is called "Bang! Bang!, Artists Against Guns" but I guess I should mention that I am not really against guns... I think they have an important, if not complicated, historical significance. They also often have a very important personal significance, which encompasses lots of emotion depending on your personal connection to guns. It a subject that needs more thoughtful conversations and more understanding between everyone and their respective sides on the issue. I am happy that I can be in a show that can bring a different, rational, and informed opinion to the discussion.
