Everything is You

John says, "These pieces are from my brown work. In some ways, I construed [painting] as a matter of accumulation. I discovered Freud's formulations as 'art is a sublimated anal impulse,' and 'the urge to make art derives from the urge to model feces' that really resonated with where my work was at."
