‘Catharsis’ is an adjunct piece created during the process of painting the Stability Series. Using the left over paint from each spine, I continued the conversation and exploration around my back injury. It is the back-story to the series (pun intended) and explores questions ranging from the cycles of life to putting ‘my spine’ on display. I am not sure if it’s complete, and perhaps the piece will have more to say after the series has been shown.

Sublimation is taking an experience, impulse, or desire from the inside and expressing it externally. This process is not complete until it is seen or heard. Here, I desire the pulse that allows art to fully exist. The conversation.
