The Monogamy Project
Genovese/Sullivan Gallery, Boston, MA, October 2003
Monogamy is fraught with tension. It represents both the strength of limitations and the most repressive limitations possible. It is an area where the liberative and the repressive meet and live in tension. Monogamy can be shoved down ones throat by the moralists, or it can, as in my case, prove to be an unexpectedly liberating and erotic position to live from. In the current culture there are many rich parallels between painting and monogamy. They are both dated practices oversteeped in tradition and held in suspicion. Having thus been marginalized they become, surprisingly, areas that are ripe again for truly liberative activity.
