Wrath of God
1 of 1
This installation has nothing to do with 9/11.
I began studies for these drawings in the summer of 2000. The original intent was to do a series of large scale drawings,
each executed in a realistic, labored manner. On the surface the drawings would be serious, but somehow in their
seriousness, they would really just be ridiculous. At the time, I found the idea of young, hip new yorkers looking up into
the sky in fear at some undefined menace, (UFO? judgement day? suicide? bad ad? wrath of god?) very,
After 9/11, I abandoned this idea and I didn’t start drawing again until 2004.
This installation is not so much about the actual drawings (I see them as a means to an end), as it is about context.
So I guess maybe this installation is about 9/11 after-all.
