Facing forward.

In preparation for an upcoming show, I am making four new drawings, including this, which is based on the mug shot of a Finnish immigrant coming through Ellis Island in the 1920’s. The text is a lyric from the Living Colour song Type: “Everything is possible but nothing is real.” Sort of sums up my feelings about the idea of the American dream.

I’ve also made a portrait of another American dreamer, Spalding Gray, which, along with other new works, you can see in the COLOR gallery. Because why not?
