“When I started interviewing the artists, I was so inspired by their willingness to suffer for a calling they found pure. Their audacity made them saintly to me. I wanted to explore belief in one’s art and the way it relates to religious faith and spiritual calling. Creative practice almost becomes a religion. And I think, through it, you become closer to God.”
The title of the show BLESSED ASSURANCE comes from a hymn. “This entire show came to me in a dream. I find it intriguing to create a physical space from a mindset and an openness that I feel so connected to as a driving force. I’m happy to explore the act of making as its very own reward. Its very own promise and certainty.”
