I’ve been working on this series for a while and it is still very inspiring to me. It is limitless when you think of all of the things that can be revealed if you were able to peal back the layers of a person. The first piece I did in this fashion was for a group show titled, “Cut” I took the title literally and imagined one of the nail heads I had been making, only cut open. What would be inside? The pieces have evolved a little bit, but the overall concept is still intact. The piece, “Treasure Maps” is about the improbability of uncovering the truth in any memory. If one had a traumatic experience, their perception of the event would obviously be affected. One would almost need some kind of map to locate the objective truth in the memory. I’m not sure that it would even be possible to locate and to me, that is fine. We as humans are wired that way and that’s why we are humans and not robots. It’s these complexities and tiny universes that would be revealed that interest me.
