Resume of My Failures, 2016. Paper towels, ink, clothespins, and yarn.

The resume is a kind of portrait you choose and are then obligated to give to other people. So I decided to make a self-portrait of my failures, hanging out my dirty laundry, so to speak, and subsequently destroy it with water and ink. Subsequently, I created a Resume of My Dreams to map an impossibly ideal plan of my life until my peaceful death in 2100. Recognizing this, it's also written on a paper towel, just painted gold. Which is not to say that the future is a sham, but that you can paint it whatever color you want. 

Resume of My Dreams, 2016. Paper towels, acrylic paint, clothespins, and thread.

Absent Sitter, 2016. Acrylic and oil on chair.

For Absent Sitter I asked friends and acquaintances to describe people they missed and placed their words over an image of the omnipresent sky.
