  • START THINKING II (2019) - A new 6x6 handwritten text piece, featuring a quote from Norton Juster’s classic children’s book The Phantom Tollbooth. “Since you got here by not thinking,” he wrote “It seems reasonable to expect that, in order to get out, you must start thinking.” (If you’re curious, swipe right to see the original version of this.)

  • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “DECEMBER 28 2015 CHELPIE” from the Left Hanging series, which quotes unanswered messages I sent on internet dating sites. These failed efforts to spark a connection are hand cut into various materials, the letters left attached and dangling. Often hung off the wall and lit with a spot, the shadows are more clearly legible than the object casting the shadow. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The viewer knows nothing of the writer or recipient, though a intimate portrait gradually emerges: a struggling creative, whose tireless sense of hope (and humor) belies a weary awareness of the artificial, projected nature of these online communications. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The messages on black tyvek are warped and wrapped, generating illusionistic shadow forms. The stretched letters echoing the author’s initial efforts to shape the message for its intended recipient. Thin and delicate, they are fastened only at the top, so viewer’s movements cause the material to ripple, individual letters to flutter and shake, further activating the forms. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #lefthanging_art, #wordart, #Textbasedart, #nicholasfraser_art, #textart, #textartist, #artwithwords, #text, #illegibleart, #legibleart, #conceptualart, #conceptualsculpture, #shadowart, #tyvek, #handcut, #2018art, #brooklynartist, #okcupid, #datingfail, #NYCbanner, #banner, #impeachtrump, #trumpisanidiot
