I love tinkering and making. Occasionally, I get the unique opportunity to make and display art.
Below are images from a 2018 collaboration titled "Progetto in Memoriam" with artist Heather McGeachy. For this exhibition, at Gallery 114 in Portland Oregon, I created 5 tridimensional pieces, each exploring the notion of "accidental death" and media influence. Each piece focused on events that touched, unsettled or distressed me.
"They were 50" focused on the 2016 Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, Florida.
"3 and 1/2 accidents" focused on famous deaths due to prescription drugs abuse.
"36 fairytales" focused on the relationship between Lady Diana's death and life.
"About 35%" focused on the Syrian conflict and its numerous younger victims.
"Uno.Sole" focused on prematurely departing fathers, including my own.
