A few years later in 2015, I got an email asking if I’d be interested in cleaning up some tags on the wildebeest mural, and possibly expanding the work as well. In between the initial mural work and then, the building had been turned over to Hauser & Wirth to become a gallery space. Over the intervening years, the themes of my work made a hard pivot. Within a very short period of time, I lost two dear friends, three grandparents, and a classmate from my son’s 5th grade—disease, suicide, old age, and freak accident. I began making work from and about memories – creating fractured realities in landscape form as allegorical time travel.
