Hey. So. Yeah.
It's been a tough week, America. When I was working on the paintings for my current show, This is America, I didn't anticipate that by the time I was done, I would no longer recognize the country I lived in. I don't have anything really profound to say. I don't even have anything completely unprofound to say. So I've been laying low this week, and instead of contributing my voice to the noise out there, I've been posting the work of some black artists I admire on Instagram, trying to support causes I believe in, and trying not to be overwhelmed by the images coming in from around the country.
I was thinking of staying absent for a while, ceding my space to others who have something more relevant to say right now. But I am a working artist and I do need to continue to plug my work, even though this week is maybe not the ideal time to do so. And so today, two prints from my show This Is America are available for sale through Thinkspace Projects right now, right here. We've decided to donate a portion of the proceeds to Black Lives Matters and bail action funds here in Los Angeles. Because that's the least we can do in these troubled times. Those of you who follow my work have continually been there for me, supporting my career, and I am forever thankful for that. If you want to grab a print, please do. If you are not in a place right now to buy a print, I get that. Please know that I am trying to be there for you the way you have all been there for me. Stay safe, and stay strong.
