i've done about 400 matchboxes since i've started school. for my show at roq la rue im planning to do 10 paintings and 300 matchboxes. 100 matchbox per frame. i've never had so much at one point that i've become really attached to them. i know it's a hell of a lot of matchboxes, and i would stop doing them if i felt like i was repeating myself. but i like the new directions they are going, so as long as they continue to evolve then i can't stop:) they are super fun too. im planning to show a small series at this year miami art basel too.
