I'm trying to deal with ideas about histories, fame, hearsay, and how public identities are constructed.
I try to deal with the complexities of power and social life, but as far as the visual presentation goes I purposely avoid a high degree of difficulty.
Look, we're all saddled with things that make us better or worse. This world is a crazy place, and I've chosen to make my work about that insanity.
All the gossip and craziness becomes a kind of sustained narrative which, in turn, can become history. It's scary.
Prominence is cool, but when the delusion kicks in it can be a drag. Especially if you choose to surround yourself with friends and not acolytes.
