ARTIST STATEMENT

Inspired by a drive I took through Death Valley, one of the hottest places earth. Endless roads with dust and sand blowing over the highway, leading to safety and freedom. Funny story about this piece. I asked the model featured here if I could use his photo through a facebook message and he agreed. Fast forward to last year, I’m working at the restaurant serving tables and his name comes up on the guest list and he just so happens to sit in my section. At the end of the meal I told him about our little facebook message exchange, and how he had given me permission to use his photo as a reference. I then pulled out of my pocket a business card with his face on it and he smiled. He took the card, shook my hand and thanked me by name. It was a surreal experience! haha
