I have a show up now at Springfield College called "I Will Swallow It". Below is the statement from the show and more information. I will post pictures and write a little more about the work in my next post.


The space that we built to protect ourselves we have decided to break it apart. It will do us good to move out of this place. We have stewed in our own juices long enough.


“I Will Swallow It” is the sixth installment in a series called “All the Trappings”. The characters involved in this body of work have been trying to find a home for themselves by constructing fortified spaces out of cardboard, textiles, collaged imagery from shopping catalogs, and found and homemade objects. The spaces end up being isolating neurotic boxes of great pleasure and disgust.

The structure “I Will Swallow It” seems to be the beginning of a change in direction for these characters. The structure seems to have been opened up and is in the process of being dismantled or maybe it is being reconfigured.
