Just added what I have so far of the Letters project on my website. Check it out and let me know what you think. I’m realizing now I need a place to put the artist statement for it somewhere. You can find that here.

These are still obviously a work in progress and I’m looking forward to making more so I can display them the way I want to display them.

I’ve started work on a new project, or potential new project, but I desperately need some honest and constructive feedback. I feel like they are missing something, but I’m not sure what. Or maybe they work the way that they are. I’ve been staring at these almost everyday for a month and would like a new pair of eyes.

The idea of speaking your true feelings and thoughts to someone is completely terrifying, and it’s even more awful and terrifying if it’s something negative and to someone you care a great deal for. While communication is the backbone of all relationships, it puts more pressure on both party’s shoulders; you want to be honest without being hurtful and sometimes it’s just easier to not say anything at all. The result is a few days of heartache followed by weeks and sometimes months of “what I should have said was…” or “I can’t believe I never said…”; it’s an afterthought of guilt, heartache, embarrassment, shame and unrealized honesty. These have become the letters I should have written you.

Done. 6th installment from the Growth, Destruction, Rebirth I series that I have driven myself insane over for the last almost 2 years [that last part is embarrassing].

To really get an understanding of what you’re looking at and the power of these pieces, you need to go to his website and look at the enlarged, 360 views of his work. These pieces are made entirely out of guns, casings, artillery shells, and human remains.
