What on Earth

After a long and fruitful stint at the Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Texas I’m happy to be back in Kansas City. Marfa is unlike any place I’ve been to before and I’m entirely grateful to all the wonderful people down there. Here’s some work I made in Marfa over the past 4 months. Most of the works are from an exhibition I had called “What on Earth.” Hope you like it!
