I like sculpture gardens and sculptures in fields, and I had the idea that it would be fun to make sculptures out of old ideas and beliefs, the age-old constructs that, to my thinking, plague cultures and individual lives. People make sculptures that represent ideas, but here I was more interested in imagining that we could literally transform ideas whose shelf lives have gone stale (or are otherwise harmful) into actual objects to enjoy. In this way, the old constructs would be captured and put to rest, but also replenished. As I painted these pieces, while I came to think of the objects they feature — the “sculptures” — as playful renovations, I also thought something darker: the sense that these objects mark the end point for notions by which people (myself included) have lived some (or much?) of their lives. Ideas organize but also curate our experience and what they leave out can be as dangerous or as helpful as what they leave in. Saying goodbye to old ideas--ways of seeing people and the world, etc.-- signals development and cause for celebration but also loss and grief. These paintings represent something underlying and constant in my experience: some felt relationship between sadness and delight.
