After the suicide of a girl I went to high school with, I was left utterly distraught. I considered the fragility of life and the passage of time. The piece was done on left-over construction paper scroll I used as a child. I used one single, entire piece of compressed charcoal to mark across the scroll until the charcoal was gone and the scroll was filled. It is meant to be rolled and unrolled, in much the same way one would roll and unroll a Torah scroll. However, the marks of the charcoal are impermanent, and sprayed with no fixative, so that every time the piece is unrolled, a bit of it fades. This contrasts with the finality of an &#8216;X&#8217; motion, the crossing-out of a day in a calendar, or a moment in time.

Q

evergreennerve asked:

Who inspires you?

A

hmm it changes constantly but I love Edward Gorey and René Magritte. Also Cindy Sherman, Marina Abromovic, Man Ray, and Ai Weiwei. There are a lot more but I’m not sure if my art necessarily reflects their styles.
