DOMESTIC is a dialogue between these two forces. A conversation of objects, and drawings that try to bring harmony and understanding to the skater and the homemaker. The work speaks to the idea of a punk domestic, an idealized aesthetic language of what it is to be an outsider living and thriving within the system."
"Sometimes when the world spins a little slower I like to take a look around me and ask myself what the 16 year old angry skater kid that still live inside of me would think about thirty-something domestic I’ve become. I could only imagine the conversations we would have. “Why are you spending so much damn time cutting the grass? It looks good enough. Lets fucking go!” He would say. Then I patiently tell him “I have to spend so much time on the lawn because I have to make it better than every lawn on the street. I’m not letting these squares be better than me.” I would tell him about how life is so much more than his half developed brain could comprehend. I would reassure him that the same rage and defiance is still very much alive inside of me, I have just channeled it into something useful. He no doubt, would have a bone crushing sarcastic response, and dismiss any and all wisdom that I tried pass down to him as the words of an out-of-touch old man.
