Abstract

"Who's Got a Price on Their Head?" was a solo exhibition of my installation of the same name. The installation filled the John F. Lott Gallery of the Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts (LHUCA), turning the space into an immersive viewer experience. The exhibition included sculptural elements and projection-mapping technology. I was invited to show by Linda Cullum, Curator of LHUCA.

Show Statement:

"My work investigates themes of personal and shared histories. With that in mind, Who's Got a Price on Their Head?", is a closer examination of aggression and the idea that we are building our own destruction through a desire for power.

Robert E. Arnall was a U.S. Military Telegrapher at Operation Crossroads in Bikini Atoll leading up to the Cold War (peacetime).

I didn’t know my grandfather, but his memory bothers me though stories of his anger, alcoholism, aggression and the abuse he caused my father.

My father is not an easy person.

In Paducah, KY, I witnessed an American Pit Bull Terrier chase, catch and eat a cat in a neighbor’s backyard. A woman was on top of the dog punching it, and spraying it in the face with pepper spray. The dog did not let go. The cat and the dog were of the same owner.

Mortality is inevitable."
