Left-hand painting, “Alleged,” 2019.
Acrylic on paper. 18 x 24 inches.
In April, several of the Left-Hand works will be exhibited in a show called Figments at ShockBoxx Gallery in Hermosa Beach.
Figments is a group art show where artists reflect on the relationship with one’s self and topics of mental health, including disorders like anxiety disorder, depression and body dysmorphia. We invite artists to explore both the causation and effects of mental health issues and instability through visual art and writing.
With figments, we aim to destigmatize mental health issues, as well as promote personal growth, a healthy relationship with one’s self, and a positive, supportive community.

Years ago, I had a period in my life where I experienced dreams that were more than just simple dreams. This painting is about one of those dreams. In it, I am a whale in the Pacific Northwest. I’m not an Orca, I’m larger than that. Perhaps a grey or humpback. I know I am being hunted by a local tribe. We are not enemies. We are NOT enemies. Rather than fight them, I roll over and allow them to pierce my abdomen at my umbilicus with a very large wooden spear, giving my flesh to them.
As the spear pierces my whale belly I look down to see that I am no longer the whale but my current physical self with a wooden spear piercing my body front and back at my belly button. Everything turns to white and I wake up.
A friend took my dream to our local Paiute shaman who said that this was a message about my true nature.
