To Whom It May Concern.
There are times when an elaborate explanation or justification from the artist is required to access a work of art. As in this particular case, each piece in this body of work is selfexplanatory by the text, image and title. There is only so much to rationalize until the work
is either unnecessarily elevated to great heights or relegated to a misreading of the artists intentions and so on and so forth.
As an artist, I feel that it is my responsibility to contribute towards making the world a better place, which does not necessarily involve making beautiful, intricately decorated objects. It is possible to contribute by being sincere and straight forward about certain subjects.
I have chosen these temporary road signs to serve as a backdrop for my text as to emulate its primary function of warning road users of incoming obstructions. My intention is to create a body of work in the most economical manner that serves as a gentle reminder of my privileged position as an artist as I continue on my journey through the vast and ever so overwhelming world of contemporary art.
