xredux is about missing a part of the party. It’s empty here now. Quiet. Taggers have found a way to make their marks. I can’t decide if I should stay or go. Purgatory. Turning over another drawing to you or the trash. By theft, sale or forced removal. To be in it. To stay. To watch without watching. I spend literally countless hours mark-making, and planning and executing “performances” with you and for you. Because I can, and must. This, my deep breath.
