Personal reflection has been the driving force in my most recent artwork. With Third Law, I started with a firsthand look at how I had handled the past year. I often felt as if I could only take short breaths and had to endure a constant onslaught of anxiety. Knowing there is a consequence for this behavior, I was led to the question of, what was the price of my actions? With Third Law, I repeatedly hold my breath for as long as I can. As I continue to do this, my body and determination start to deteriorate. I do this to illustrate that our actions have consequences. I wanted to look at action and reaction, not in a liner pattern, but side by side.
The genesis of bull boy will never be truly know for his ability to speak is limited to just a few catchphrases. Some say he is the son of legendary bull rider Burt Leroy McGuffern and a cow. Others claim his horns are the product of experimental plastic surgery. Bull boy’s desire to learn how to become a real man is why he started working in spaghetti westerns. His pistol/stilts are props from his only paying acting job called The Beast With Stilts For Pistols 1967. Now bull boy is working on the rodeo circuit where he does many different jobs. Sometimes he is a bull rider or a rodeo clown, and when they are in a pinch, he will even play the part of the bull. Bull Boy hopes the rodeo will teach him how to become a true man.

Steel and Concrete
Where I am from, my surroundings play a large role in my understanding of the world. I can only assume that the same can be said for people on the other side of the globe. I wonder if they too struggle, just like I do, to remember that the world we see is not all there is.

Learning to Sit Still
In an attempt to learn how to sit still, I created a chair that does not sit upright. Setting in this chair requires intense focus and awareness of my entire body.
