This creepy little guy took an Honorable Mention at Digitized 2006 and finally sold at my solo show God From the Machine 2013, where it ended up getting a lot more attention. Many people assumed it was new work, when in fact it hadn’t been seen anywhere for years after dropping out of sight in 2006. It just goes to show you, never give up on a piece of art you have faith in!
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!
