Home Sweet Nothing, 2016

“They don't send you letters

They don't telephone you

They don't send you letters

But you're waiting for them

You're writing”


Home Sweet Nothing is a body of work that came out of the realization that the place you live has become the furthest place you want to be.  When you discover all your friends are sleeping together and the city you thought encourages integrity, really only embraces the non-committal. When you find more comfort in the place you sleep for one night then the place you pay your bills.   For all those who keep paying, who tread water on lost friendships and question why you ever left New Jersey, this body of work is for you.
