Please Be Quiet, Please.

08 MAR - 10 MAR 2019

The ʻPlease Be Quiet, Please’ paintings are an ongoing series, produced in lieu of a conversation. The title comes from the first short-story collection by American author, Raymon Carver called: Will You Please Be Quiet, Please? (1976).

The paintings are the essence of the larger, more narrative paintings reduced back down to just paint. It spills into, or is regurgitated out of disembodied heads from previous works. The paint could resemble speech or thought bubbles, a stream that cannot be turned off, the things you should have said and the things you wish you hadn’t.
