Resignation of the Spirit_Eash

"Resignation of the Spirit" and "Megalomania" were selected by guest curators Cesar Garcia (Mistake Room, LA) and Naima J. Keith (The Studio Museum, NY) for "Ebb and Flow" at Pro Arts Gallery, Oakland, CA 2015

"Ebb and Flow" was prompted with a quote by Jean Genet, Prisoner of Love

 “The page that was blank to begin with is now crossed from top to bottom with tiny black characters–letters, words, commas, exclamation marks–and it’s because of them the page is said to be legible. But a kind of uneasiness, a feeling close to nausea, an irresolution that stays my hand–these make me wonder: do these black marks add up to reality? The white of the paper is an artifice that’s replaced the translucency of parchment and the ochre surface of clay tablets; but the ochre and the translucency and the whiteness may possess more reality than the signs that mar them.”
