Activating my work by placing it in non-traditional contexts has been part of my artistic practice since the late-1980’s. This has included sticker graffiti art installation and stenciling, creating chemical awareness lawn signs, and street performance art.
These photographs are from a body of work where I stared into the eye of the American Dream, Mainstream culture, and the people I met on the street. Seeing quiet moments within the chaotic city energy added a new layer to my artistic education. This laid the foundation for me later to be a street performance artist.
This gallery features examples of my work as a member of the Iron Range Community Documentary Project from 1986-1990.
I became friends with Andrew during his stays at a local children's hospital that were a constant part of his all too brief beautiful life.
