words I tried to say

A series of phrases subtlety stenciled in drywall joint compound to the walls of the gallery. Each phrase has been extracted from a series of short stories by the artist, written about objects, memories and family but never published. In their incompletion and fragile cracking material, these pieces of text suggest the holes in memory and the hazards of personal reflection, while opening up these stories to other narratives.

Title: words I tried to say
Date: 2016
Materials: joint compound on wall
Dimensions: variable

Part of the exhibition, All Soul, No Body at Harmony Murphy Gallery, LA
