Opening reception, Saturday, March 23, 6 – 9 PM
One would be right in saying that my gaze is directed by desire. But my fascination is with the complexity of desire’s origin, and the ways in which it dictates behavior. I’m talking about an arousal template molded from the home interior and one’s own family unit, as well as from societal givens. For me the jewel is how this internal ‘carrot on a stick’ has the potential to complicate a moral compass, and I am most interested in this trouble. Not as a boy taking pleasure in being naughty, but as man baffled by his own fumbling heart.
