Snakerun- on view at the Mahan Gallery


This project which I decided to title snakerun [a skateboarding reference] has been a work in progress for a couple of years now. A twisted, zig-zagging,ditch like terrain leads to hours of freedom on four wheels.
The Timber Rattlesnake is a fascinating creature, only native to North America. The slogan " Don't tread on me " was inspired by this snake during the revolutionary war. A predator which dwells within impenetrable rock will only strike in vengeance only if stepped upon.

This collection will be on display through the month of December 2007 at the Mahan Gallery, in Columbus Ohio. The show titled, White Light White Heat, in reference to the Velvet Underground album exhibits how artists use whiteness in there work.

I think I remember you doing casts of that snake back when I was still in the basement
