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.    2015  41.5” x 9.5” x 9.5”

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.
