Aftermath is a series of paintings created shortly after the opening of the I Live Here:SF exhibition. Faced with the end of two labor-intensive months making the work for the exhibition, these paintings document the sudden reversion into my previously established daily practice. They were my attempt at visually processing the resulting cognitions and emotions while reverting a sequester of oneself, that defined vision and goal, and returning to an abstract social rhythm.

The work for the I Live Here: SF project has since been retracted from my catalog and the prototypes have been re-purposed into the Ephemera series.
