YOU F!*^ING COMPLETE ME

You F!*^ing Complete Me is a collection of North American landscapes which encourage the audience to consider the spiritual aspects of space, distance and nature. It asks the viewer to engage with what is unseen in the image and yet charges the landscape with energy and emotion. You F!*^ing Complete Me offers no definitives, but only the opportunity for visual mediation.

You F!*^ing Complete Me draws inspiration from Christian Wiman’s work, the works of Mary Oliver, the trees of the Canadian sheild, the rocks of the Wyoming badlands, the winds of the golden seas of prairies, the mists of the Pacific Northwest and the aritst’s own experience and history.

This exhibit was open to the public May 2016 at the The Sugarbowl.

“An artist, on the other hand, makes you feel just how much missing life is contained within a given image: it is as if the image is surrounded with, enlived and even created by, the invisuble, the unknowable, the absent. It’s not accurate to say that someone who has learned to see like this has forgotten that there is a lens between himself and life. It’s more that the lens has become so intuitive and fluent that it’s just another, clearer eye.”
- Christan Wiman, “My Bright Abyss”
