HAELER: GRAFFITI KEEPS DETROIT FROM LOOKING LIKE A GHOST TOWN

April 07 2015 . 07:47pm

Things are fucked up in Detroit. And they’re not just hidden-behind-the-scenes fucked up, but in-your-face fucked up. Throughout the city, there are deep pockets of half-collapsed buildings and blocks of burned-out homes. Once elegant places now look so abandoned that if it was not for the graffiti, there would be virtually no evidence of human activity. The decaying ruins and urban sprawl are what make “the D” such an inviting canvas for writers all across the nation; an aerosol mecca that warrants at least one pilgrimage.

RIME “DANGER ZONE” at GALERIE WALLWORKS in Paris, France opening April 2, 2015

April 02 2015 . 01:12am

 
“After a two month long residency in Paris, France, I am please to present my second solo show at Galerie Wallworks. Showing over 20 new paintings created in Paris and New York City. Opening reception – Thursday April 2nd, 7-10 pm.

My thought process while creating work for this show –
What a pain in the ass it is to tell the truth. To do what you want while embracing actions in an unapologetic way. At times you question what is off the cuff, and what was meticulously plotted long before you said it. Genuine connection to universal meaning. Honesty. To somehow dazzle and offend all at the same time, as a junky for odd circumstance. You want to believe you’re always on. That you’re this cache of engaging life experience, that is so abundant, so graceful as it’s spilled all over others. Dilemma. Infectious questions are the answer… Running as fast as you can from that fine line between corny and cool. Seasoned storyteller with a dysfunctional sense of humor. 90% proof. You want to believe that you have it all figured out under the flag of always being in the process of figuring it out. Fighting the guilt of sleeping past noon. Commitment to the line. Expecting more than the line of “I like the colors though”.”
-Rime
