City of Rain

Dedicated to Greg ‘Blyes’ Boomer, this work was made possible by The Field Artist Residency

City of Rain (2010) is a work I created about a friend of mine who had passed away. He had a severe illness that caused him to be paralyzed from the waist down. We went to college together, and he was a dancer. As his friend, I saw his struggles firsthand. I wanted to create something that honored him.
