Feelings chronicles a spectrum of emotion from wonderment, flagrant nihilism, and maybe a little crush… But Feelings aren’t just emotions: they are sensations, perceptions, hunches, and auras. “Feelings” is also a munted verb– to touch or be touched, more than once. Feelings are a little like concealing your snide opinion, or sincerity behind a feeble joke. Or your boner behind a cushion.
Feelings is a variety of small sculpture and 2D works using a mega-mix of traditional and old-timey materials; lost wax casting, crystals and minerals, wood carving, gold leaf-ing, tapestry – and shit from your uncles basement – barware, pink neon signs, and a whole lot of pornos.
