Franks’s New Assignment

On Display May15-June 13th

When considering the theme of this show, my mind raced with all of the possibilities of revenge.  Poisoned coffee?  Cut brake lines?  Pubic ridicule?  I gave this topic much consideration, and while my mind was racing with visions of potatoes in exhaust systems and broken windows-one continual theme continued to return to my mind.  Whether or not people can coexist in a peaceful manner or not, life does indeed go on.  People grow and change, as if on their own paths, to learn from mistakes, and develop as humans.  The most harmful single thing that one being can do to another is to somehow alter that trajectory.  I took inspiration for this theme from the film Donnie Darko.  A young man is going through a particularly difficult adolescence who’s life is thrown into calamity of: altered realities, arson, violence and ultimately death.  In the film, the harbinger of the main character’s mental instability, hallucinations, and eventual downfall is a large rabbit character, Frank.  In my piece, revenge is being served by a re imagination of this character.  Soft, and ominous he makes his way through the snowy woods of his reality, off to wreak havoc on a singular victim of the viewer’s choice. Thank you letting me be a part of this show, and allowing me to truly ponder, what revenge would be the coldest dish indeed.
