"In The Weeds" back story
"I accidentally became obsessed with trying to understand how O.J. Simpson was never punished for murdering Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. There were so many events and people that added up to O.J. murdered them and he got away with it. A lot of it (most of it?) had nothing to do with the victims at all.
How is this canvas related?
It’s not really. But sometimes what is happening in my head and what I am painting get linked for the rest of time. This is one of those canvases. Every time I look at it I think of Nicole Brown Simpson, Marcia Clark, O.J.’s lawyers. I was listening to a book about the murders and trial as I painted. There are big chunks of repetitive shapes, colour and line. I’d find empty spaces and make the same mark repeatedly, too engrossed in the details of what I was hearing to want to step back and reflect.
I went back and forth on whether to share what was actually happening with this canvas or just make up some story. Something to make it less, well, less about terrible murders. But it is what it is."
