Created during a time when I was really sick the wishful aphorism “EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE OKAY” became a mantra. Made with graphite and childlike block lettering, this simple drawing took on a meditative quality. Through the action of drawing I was willing this idea into existence. Later recreated as a silkscreen edition of 45, this work focuses on the ability of words and ideas to become beliefs.
