2014: Forbidden Knowledge

Robert Rauschenberg: Erased DeKooning Drawing

Robert Rauschenberg: Erased DeKooning Drawing

“The essential element in the black art of obscurantism is not that it wants to darken individual understanding, but that it wants to blacken our picture of the world, and darken our idea of existence.” – Friedrich Nietzsche

Much like Rauschenberg’s infamous Erased DeKooning Drawing, the Forbidden Knowledge series will be based on the traces of what has been left behind once a material thought becomes eradicated, obscured, or reconsidered. Over the course of 2014 this series will see itself shifting in and out of focus to call into question what was, and what is yet to become. Like a scrying mirror, or a redacted CIA document, these works will be a way for the viewer to interface with the past while simultaneously divining the future.
