I made this piece while working as a Custom Framing Manager. That job gave me quite the wake up call about modern art collection and the corporatization of art preservation. I loved many aspects of that job as I gained hands-on experience with the art of framing/preservation but became quickly frustrated by the push to deliver more cheap services for higher costs. The theme of the last year of my life was to simplify my view of myself. To see myself as simply an animal and not as a cog in the machine. I made this piece during a particularly strong longing for simple art making like I made as a child. I hope it resonates with you.
