MITOMM (Most Important Thing on My Mind)- What bothers me so much about Spitzer? What is it in me I am projecting on to him to cause discomfort and irritation?


I show you one face and hide another. When you expose my faults through your behavior I am afraid everyone will see me and know.
I am angry because you were not better at hiding our common frailties.

I spend most of my time in this room with these people. I'm a ridiculously emotionally attached, nesty sort of person, so what you see here is without a doubt the most important thing on my mind right now.

For Sale
Acrylic on canvas, 120x120cm

For the last couple of days I have been working on my next painting from "For Sale" project which is a part of my personal portfolio.
I would like to highlight that this "For Sale" is of a considerable importance to me. Through the creation process it allowed me to understand the importance of precision and development in painting. Although I could have simply print this pattern, the fact that I have spent much time on it helped me to realise that every bit of my soul is within this artworks.

I was very glad to hear about this N:H:T project. It made me think a little differently. Instead of a one-off piece, I thought I might try to focus my mind over time around one idea. I wasn't sure what the idea was; then one day on the platform of the subway at 181st it came to me. I am hoping that these pieces, though each nothing in itself, will come together into something substantial. Thanks for the occasion to create.

At First Glance (Broadway at Chambers Street)

This is near where I work. I realize the abstract treatment makes most of the following irrelevant, but I've been working with this space a fair amount lately. And since I asked people to try to relate to the "here" of Now:Here:This it seemed apropos.

It's a good "here," because it's so very physical. It's got giant wooden girders holding up a 100-year old building.

It's about time, too, I guess, the old, the new, the oddly anachronistic.

The this is just how I feel here: a transition waiting for a major change.

For the first time since I have participated I managed to both make and think of art at exactly the specified time -- I cannot say place, since I am where I am when I shoot!

That morning I was having brunch with a friend at 11am at EJs on Amsterdam Ave. I had met first Rob at the NY Magazine shoot on living with cancer which was published last spring. While I am 8 years out from my diagnosis, he continues to wrestle in the battle for his life. He has Waldenstrom's lymphoma, a rare lymphoma for which there is no known cure at present. He is still alive after numerous treatment attempts and incredibly painful bone marrow hip biopsies because of his doctor's devotion and his own energy and persistence. He and his oncologist have each other on speed dial, alert for any changes in his status [positive or negative], as well as news of any new clinical trial. When we first met he said he was hoping to stay alive until they found a cure.

I think about how cancer affects our lives and how we struggle to have lives outside of medical treatments and being obsessed with our bodies and every new ache or pain which could be "the big one, Elizabeth." Since my cancer, I have been more active as a photographer, and aware of my art, than I had ever been before. It has been a life saver in many ways-- both in documenting my treatment journey, in expressing myself, taking those long meditative photographic walks in the park and around the city, and connecting with so much.
