Apologies in advance for all the words.....
What started out as designing a simple lighting concept evolved into the first site-specific light piece I’ve done in over 10 years before I moved to Portland from NYC.
‘My Own Private Idaho’ is comprised of 11 industrial pink fluoro fixtures zip-tied to the beams of the North Warehouse and each hung at precisely 5’1” from the concrete floor around the perimeter of the space and 3 industrial lights in the center. The piece references the film of the same name which, when it was released, embodied my idols Gus Van Sant and River Phoenix and shaped my only understanding of what I thought Portland was: a gritty, dark din of mystery; a place to escape both to and from, a place where hustlers roamed free.
The period of introspection to create this work has been more than I expected to experience - shedding the heaviness of so much that was dim to feeling the lightness of now. Thank you to everyone who supported my return to this art practice & now here’s where I need your help- I’d like to work on & develop this piece further in another space in Portland.
If anyone knows of a space that could be a site for a different version of this temporal piece please let me know. 🖤 #nevernotdreaming

Inexplicable affinity for odd architecture. This recent favorite reminds me of Robert Rauschenberg‘s mixed media paintings. 🖤.....

Last leg of my journey took me through Paris again. All of the tv channels were broadcasting the presidential election. Watching Emmanuel Macron give his acceptance speech in front of the iconic Louvre & scenes of kids climbing on lightposts to wave their flags in support of their young president gave me hope. My understanding of French is limited, but when Macron spoke his last words of 'Vive La Republique! Vive La France!', no translation was needed. 🇫🇷.....

💛🖤 To see these colors and patterns in real life was surreal. She will forever be tripping.....🖤💛
🖤'The color pink which Balenciaga loved, suggested tender or violent chords with black. His decision to use a bold, striking or tender pink was dictated by the materials he was using.
Deep pink, reminiscent of the silk stockings or the cape of a toreador, was used sparingly.
Satin ribbons were generally in a softer shade; their brilliance was enough to create an intense contrast.
The couturier used the milky, almost flesh-colored, shade of pink only for organza, and placed black silk lace over it.'
