Album Notes
Scripture Reference: Job 17:12-13 [from the New Living Translation]
“These men say that night is day; they claim that the darkness is light. What if I go to the grave and make my bed in darkness?”

Artist Statement
Life is full of competing priorities. Most of my work deals with contradiction or the dual existence of contrasting realities.

We could say that light represents goodness and darkness is evil, but it could be difficult to discern which is which. You and I may agree on a few evils, but aren’t the rest of them just shades of gray? What is true goodness? Humans, as a whole, can’t agree on this.

For me, this passage in the Bible reflects on people’s differing perspectives about what truth is, and Job’s fear that he might accidentally believe a lie and eternally suffer for it.

Given all the different belief systems about the afterlife, how then, does a person decide what’s true? The path of least resistance is to take a casual approach and release yourself from the responsibility of self-preservation in the afterlife. Assuming that either “nothing” or nothing “bad” will happen to you gives you peace of mind now, but it is a gamble. And whether your winnings or losses are large or small...we’ll have to wait to find out.
