#204 Ajax Axe

What the hell is going on? That’s usually where I start from when making work. It’s actually a really tough question to answer. The more closely I look, the less sure I become. Are we unified or separate? What’s civilized and what’s primitive What is the truth and what is a collective fantasy? Is globalization a single tribe or a tribal war?

I’m mostly a sculptor but I like installation art and writing. I secretly want to be a performance artist. Sometimes I live in Aspen, Colorado; sometimes I live in Lamu, Kenya. Right now, I’m trapped in LA. It’s complicated. Identity is complicated. It’s getting more complicated. But it’s also simple.
