Cowboy is an ongoing project, started in 2015.


It is a history project about American Cowboys, which is to say, it is a movie about someone who was never a cowboy, or, a story about someone I met on the internet who said they were a cowboy; perhaps I mean to say it is a project about the word “cowboy,” or a self portrait of a word, or a self portrait of a cowboy painted by someone who is a girl, and after she painted it, the cowboy was recognizeable not because it looked like a cowboy, but because it uh wore spurs, and we’d read so many dime novels we recognized him by the outfit, and when the dust cleared, we rode out. 

Originating in Rhode Island, the Cowboy project has manifested works and exhibitions in Spain, Oregon, Montana, New Mexico, Texas, and New York City.
