WE ARE FLOATING FACES, 2007-PRESENT

floatingfaces

These drawings are self-portraits within larger portraits of the Self—reflections of Universe vibrations caught in palms and eyelids, twisted soft into surfaces. Limbs and tongues and stains—all these floating faces-- appear when I am in the most present state of existence—thoughtlessness-- when I can touch everything.

There are floating faces everywhere—in smudges and misplaced marks there are elbows and teeth and tongues, and I can only sculpt them out. I also enjoy working with many different textures and leftover materials—I like to learn new surfaces and alleyways to create; I see images in every possible place. If I could, I’d draw them down everywhere.

Sometimes I Lose My Letters

 

if words were meant to accompany charcoal dust

I would write a story, a poem

I would paste it everywhere:

 

caught these vibrations in the sieve of my palms;

pasted them to the pages

I could spin little life theories; I could make explanations

of these repeated revelations:

we are all just floating faces

traveling inside collected spaces

digesting dreams and realities into present tenses—

so I touch everything, everyone:

Here.
