All the Trappings: Ask Me About It Later
Fri Jan 14, 2011 - Sun Jan 16, 2011
725 Harrison Avenue, Suite One
Boston MA 02118

The space will be open form 10am - 10pm and I planning on staying in the gallery overnight.


The characters are separate from me. They are formed from a variety of parameters. Many of them are from histories in spaces that are not my own combined with characteristics found in myself magnified. They are living in a space separate from that which I live everyday. I have been saying this for about a year; their function and formation are shifting, maybe becoming less fantastical and more pathetic.

The character involved in "All the Trappings" is insulating itself with images of stuff and consuming frozen french fries. I guess I will use the pronoun she, she will have a pal with her that is a doll that will be a similar size to herself. The "ask me about it later" part of the title comes from this place of my not completely understanding this character but feeling really compelled to share her before she is formed. I started to work with her in Omaha. She is not involved with the world the other characters inhabit but I would say she is related.

I was in Providence, RI on Sunday and came across a documentary by David Bettencourt called You Must Be This Tall: The Story of Rocky Point Park. I had gone to Rocky Point Park as a child and my dad use to go all the time when he was a kid. The park was located in Warwick, RI and closed in 1996. The film interviewed local historians, former park employees, and people that had enjoyed the park. There was a mix of contemporary footage of the park in shambles and historical pictures and film.

While watching and listening to the interviews I kept feeling like my brain was trying to access a place that it couldn't seem to find. Maybe that doesn't make much sense but it is a feeling I get often when I think about places that at one time had a prominent and specific function and then decay and finally get torn down. Is this nostalgia? It is not always with happy places or times. I think there is a worry about forgetting things for better or worse. Histories that had happened, the space that it happened in. Is this backwards?
