2011 ArtPrize Entry
Add to Collection

This piece is entirely made of dots. Each dot is the size of the tip of a pin. I referenced a 12in x 12in photo that I gridded out into over 10,000 squares.There are 9, 19in x 24in, sheets of paper that are glued onto a 5ft x 5ft canvas. I wanted to prove to myself that I was a good artist and If I could capture what Michelangelo was able to capture in his "Pieta" and the public responded to it then i could call myself a good artist. As the piece progressed it became nothing about me and entirely about you, the viewer. Along the way many people told me I was wasting my time, that they had real jobs and received regular pay checks. This piece took 1500 hours and I had to rely solely on my faith to finish, One night a quote came over the radio that said God will not tell you to start something and not be with you to finish it. God was the one that told me to work on my art again, so I knew that as long as I kept working I would finish.
