The title for this baby is technically Taylor’s World (I did it for a special guy of that name) but I will forever think of it as “Joseph” because that was the name I knew him by when I conceived the idea.
I made it for the Space Madness 3: Planet Doom show back in August, where it premiered.
Did this for this year’s Space Madness 2: There is no cure!
Prints available soon in my Society6, Redbubble, etc.

I did this work in 2013 for my “Patchwork Dragon” solo show in November 2013. The show version had pages from my childhood personal diaries collaged around the edges to form a border. After its debut at the show, this piece with the diary page collage was auctioned off by The Literacy Center to raise money to help adults learn to read. I picked this piece especially because of the title “Love Letter” and the diary entries attached to it. It seemed the most perfect piece I had for a literacy auction.
It’s sold now to a generous supporter, but this teaser I did for the Patchwork Dragon Show shows some of the diary collage on the original piece:

I deliberately inverted the peaceful Holy Place from earlier in 2013 for my end-of-2013 solo show God From the Machine. The solo show focused on mechanization and the sometimes sinister mating of the machine-world with the natural world, so letting this discord and unnatural atmosphere seep over Holy Place seemed like an effective way to evoke that. …it kind of hurt to do though!
