Ideas of the formal art world have
ingrained this idea the that art is
something that is holy, too precious for us
to touch. I believe the opposite. With Oh
shoot! I want to flip that idea on its head.
When the viewer approaches the piece
the initial reaction is worry and dread for
the broken art, until they read the title of
the work and a sense of realization
occurs, revealing the humor of the work.
Oh shoot! is a process piece in which,
during construction, I always had a
positive mindset, investing my own joy and
happiness into the piece. Throughout the
run of the show the bits of broken shards
are take away pieces in hope to spread
that positive energy to the viewer.
