Chasing Phosphenes

As I began to prepare for my solo show I struggled to come up with a unifying theme or direction.

Jumped Off Another Cliff

 It seems like every time a take a chance and try a new way to promote my art and generate sales, it’s like I’m jumping off a cliff. I’m anxious right before, I prepare myself for a safe landing with all my gear, I get a crew to help with the jump and then swoosh…I jump!
