A series of ink drawings

2015 February

The art was made for the first show with my wife Jessica Stapp called Undulations, at the Learning Machine in Chicago, March 20 - April 5, 2015, Opening Event March 20, Friday, 7-10PM. The complete catalog of the show are available here. The show featured the music of Ben Stapp and The Zosimos. Some of this work was also featured at The Cotton Candy Machine, 235 South 1st Street, Brooklyn, NY 11211, in December 2015. Most of these images were inspired by the following short poem I had written sometime ago.

Heads filled up-to-the-brim
With needless information,
Not yet evolved to handle.
A chaotic stream, bustling:
Fears, tears, and nasty jeers.
Discipline on the surface
Forms the last sliver of sanity.
Underneath lay hidden
The Beautiful, the Pure—
Reptile brain.
