I am not behaving the way a human should; I switched roles with the painting, I am silent and motionless while the painting tells you the story. I gave birth to the paintings, yet they birth a new version of me day after day.
I lay here to show you my devotion and obsession with paint. All I ever do is paint. I truly only exist between the paint and the canvas. And I lay here to show you the value there is in chaos and in moments of uncertainty, that’s when we learn to grow.
Play with the boundaries of your mind, question your surroundings, reflect upon modern conditions and attitudes, create chaos, and then change.
The ongoing performance lasted 30 hours over a four-day show.
