Whenever possible, I like to take the opportunity to talk about my work and why I made what I made. This piece is no exception but it’s been done for months and I haven’t talked about it for a very specific reason:
I don’t want to spend all my time reassuring people that my wife and I aren’t getting divorced.
This is a rare piece in my body of work that is based on a concept and not an actual event. Maybe (probably) there is some truth to it in my own relationship, but there is nothing overtly specific to any events in our life. That being said, on with the show.
What happens when two people want different things?
But under any scrutiny, Person A is found to more complex. Layered. Textured. Nuanced.
Here is their partner, Person B.
And again, under any power lens, Person B is revealed to be a complex whole.
Enter the variable.
First the thing itself builds.
It grows into a mass, not unlike a cancer.
And it’s an equal opportunity threat.
Finally, it takes what was once a beautiful, detailed, and bright individual and clouds, distorts, and otherwise tarnishes them.
The Little Things That Come Between Us… can forever change us. What we do about them, is what’s paramount.
