We throw things away. We throw away things that we have passed. We often throw away thoughts we have grown out of, like old clothes. “Philosophical Posturing” is a series of overlaid drawings/manipulated photographs of crumpled pieces of paper paired with the philosophical thoughts that are their alleged contents. But, in what sense is getting rid of something holding it even tighter? In these works I am both asserting something and getting rid of it by displaying it. The prints would be 12"X12" Giclee prints.
