cut & paste

Excited to have two collages in this upcoming show at MEDIUM! It’s my first time showing mixed-media work, and ten years since I last showed my photography.

Maybe this will motivate me to finally finish some of the random wip projects on my art table. There’s something about the fear of getting lost in art that keeps me away, but I suppose there’s no rational sense in fearing being swallowed by art when I am swallowed by work & capitalism & my phone otherwise. Art always spits me up, anyway.
