Spillway Collective is proud to present, “Feet First”. It’s how the artist lives his life. Jumping into uncertainty with less trepidation than most. The paintings and video installations in this series are inspired by a fall off of a roof deck in Athens, Greece, resulting in the shattering of his right heel bone last summer. The paintings began with representations of the feet and collaged images inspired from the MRI of the broken bone in the foot. Over time, the images move further from the fact of the fall and focus more on the pleasures around it, such as changes in gravities and the beauty in the ability of bone marrow to manufacture our blood cells.
