Artist Statement

// BLURB //
I’ve been at this a long time. Too long. Almost 1/3 of my life on these tired streets—mostly over by old Route Dupleix (An Fu Lu today) and Avenue Joffre (Huaihai Middle Road). I guess the variety of what I see makes it more bearable, allows for a suspension of disbelief about what I really do. And then there’s my partner in crime here. When it comes down to the nuts and bolts of it all, I’m glad I chose this path. It could be worse. Drivers in Shanghai are loose, but it’s nothing compared to Beijing. Let’s put it this way: if Shanghai is Warhol’s Silver Car Crash (Double Disaster), then Beijing is his Orange Car Crash Fourteen Times. Absolutely brutal. I stay safe though, making liberal use of my headlights and my “Shanghai hello” (a honk and the, uh, one-finger wave), especially when I’m on the third-level gaojia. Take a good long look. Most people don’t see my frontside for long. I give a hello, and then a quick goodbye with a trail of smoke and the smell of burnt rubber left in the air. I leave behind only my tread dread, my haze craze.
