You Can't Go Home, 2015

I grew up in the mountains of Virginia with a pastoral country life style, and the pursuit of a life in fine art has brought me to New York City. I have a half-lifetime of practical knowledge that seems so useless in this city. How to plant a garden, feed cows, and drive a tractor is of little use in Brooklyn. In a similar way, so it is with contemporary art in the country. My work has begun to reflect this conflict of feeling out of sync in either place. Home is never completely 'home.'

The project "You Can't Go Home," developed out of this feeling of homesickness. I began interviewing artists who live around me in New York. I would go to where they live in the city and ask them questions about what does this word 'home' mean to them, are they looking for it, are they finding it? It was a way of connecting to other people here who are also trying to inhabit and make art in this paradoxically harsh and vital environment.
