In 2014 I drew my autobiography, making a kind of timeline on sheets of paper 15″ tall and eventually about 30′ wide. I started in the present and worked backwards. Having filled in my past, taking up the present, I began making little accordion books, sizes varying depending upon what I’m thinking about and processing. The early books are around 5″ high, with folds every 4″ or so. The more recent ones have grown a little taller.
I used to struggle a lot with what, and how much, to disclose in my work about the details of my life and my psychology.. Now, though, four years in, I’m still making these expressive little journals of thoughts and issues. With more books in process, tasteless or not, here they are, for viewing. Humor, angst, Zen, daily delights, nature and nurture are all mixed up. Presented as processed, cut and sewn, one non sequitur followed by another, I call them “Neurotica”.
