A Life Together
About the artwork
When I finished painting this, the other day, I called out to Josh to tell him that I made a painting about him. He said, “All of your work is about me.” And I thought about it for a few moments. That is mostly true. I have been making work about him for 11 years. This past year, we had a baby with CF and went into lockdown. These changes have really complicated our relationship. So many things were out of our control. And still are. But this statement feels so true. And I needed a reminder.
In honor of this collaboration, Absolut Art donated $500 to Extinction Rebellion, an organization fighting climate change.
