"Nothing is Wrong, Everything is Fine"

Closing Reception: Wednesday, September 7th, 2011_7PM

It is my great pleasure to have been invited by G Gallery and the VSVSVS crew to show some of my newest visual work to date. This exhibition explores the complexity of repetition and its relationship to order and malaise in the psyche of the creative mind. What began as a series of drawings, overtime developed into a dual channel video work that has been meticulously cut apart and reconfigured. New forms and meanings are given to images that are familiar and - in some cases - nostalgic. “Nothing is Wrong, Everything is Fine” emphasizes a belief in the effectiveness of art as a tool for healing and emotional externalization; a floating oasis for a ship lost at sea.
