Isn’t it all about making something out of the hard stuff through some distance? This work was made a year ago, quickly, under a deadline. The neon came from a Co-op gas station somewhere on the island. When the Co-op company rebranded, switching from neon to LEDs in their new design, local sign companies were hired to remove the neon pieces from each store. I saved this piece of glass from a dumpster. The words are something that somebody used to say. I borrowed them and made them into work so I could tell that somebody I was in love with them. They dumped me over text the same day of the deadline. Aren’t you reading this because you wanted to know what the art was about?
