Apology to Loneliness
I once wished loneliness would leave my life alone, but then I realized that it is out of loneliness that I make art.
I began this project as an exploration of this new understanding; something of an apology to loneliness, an appreciation of where it takes me.
I began working on three wax sculptures (Flower, Heart and Shell). Each one changed radically from day to day. I photographed whichever piece I’d worked on at the end of the day and you can see many of the variations in the gallery.
I also made color pen drawings of the sea and sky as well as black and white digital drawings of the cityscape of New York City outside my window—and I’ve made some images incorporating the sculpture pieces with these.
