2012 to present
Iron-on lettering, used clothing

In this series, used garments serve as ground for vinyl, flocked, felt, sequined, and bejeweled lettering. Each text has been carefully curated, many written by the artist. Some are deep confessions, some express existential anxieties, and others celebrate sources of joy.

A few are quotations whose context and content resonated deeply. For example, “Food and Water Shortages in Our Lifetime” comes from graffiti visible for years in Manhattan’s Bowery. “His Words Were Bone Crushing” comes from Pastor Eric Brown in response to Trump’s 2017 comments on Charlottesville.
