Can We Talk
© Can We Talk, 2018, Bronze, Steel, Wood, Light, Audio, 74 x 120 inches, Collection of the Artist, Pittsburgh, PA
In our country’s current climate of violence and lack of communication, this shocking installation begs the viewer to feel and to think. Hopefully, CAN WE TALK provokes viewers from both sides to stop and ask, “can we talk”?
“It is always my intention to provide a narrative alongside my sculptures to showcase the power and purpose of art as dialogue. To transform perspectives. To resolve misunderstandings. To educate and inform the viewer through an unbiased lens. CAN WE TALK forces us to debate. We can and must find common ground on the issues of gun violence and gun rights; let’s talk about it before it’s too late.”
