Drawings for Three Rooms in Your Home

December 2011

This is an edition with 20×200/YouShouldBuyArt.com – and each of the limited edition prints are available starting at $20.

Like the title says, the idea is that you’d hang this series of drawings in various rooms in your home.

Makes a great gift.

Statement about the work

Whenever asked, “How long did it take you to make this?” I always respond, “My whole life up to that moment.” And it’s true.

I never liked the idea that someone could just buy my work. I develop ideas forever, then struggle with finding a way to execute them that makes sense, often traversing through several iterations. And then someone writes a check and that’s the end. What?

I work too hard on this stuff. Simply paying for it and hanging it on a wall is too easy. I don’t want anything I do becoming another inanimate object that decorates someone’s home. I want more. I want ramifications!

So I came up with this. This feels more like a real transaction. Yes, you get to own something I made, but you also accept some responsibility. Put this on your wall and you have to be more honest as a result. It’s more than just an image, it becomes a point of interaction with everyone who comes into your home. It’s simple ink on paper, but wherever it hangs, there’re social implications.

It’s not for everyone.
