Selectors' Comments:
Lucid, loose, clear moments of making mix and push awkward paint into smooth sense and confident reference. Luscious.

Artist's Statement:
I made these paintings between the ages of 23 and 21. While heavily influenced by [I love NY] and [the Artist Formerly Known As Prince] (drawing on the experiences of being 25 and 24) I hope to make in my 17th year a nonsensical equation that makes sense.
