Goodbye to All That

Opening reception Thursday, July 17th 7—9pm

I wanted a hundred times to kill myself, but I still loved life. This ridiculous weakness is perhaps one of our most macabre tendencies: for is there anything more silly than to continually want to carry a burden that one can always throw to the ground?

Voltaire, Candide

Of course it might have been some other city, had circumstances been different and the time been different and had I been different, might have been Paris or Chicago or even San Francisco, but because I am talking about myself I am talking here about New York.

Joan Didion, "Goodbye to All That"

For my first show in New York, I present a farewell to the city, my adopted home. Three years here with a rain cloud lurking over my head and I am just beginning to discern its outlines; it looks suspiciously like a forlorn, tear­soaked Papaya Dog. Sometimes a change of scenery is the only way to quiet a fussy baby. I'll be gone when the coconut oil solidifies.

Love forever,
