Etiquette for breaking a girl’s spirit: When you seek to break her, strike once. Strike hard. Strike with vague warning. Make sure all the broken pieces settle on a visible surface, preferably a hardwood floor or a mustard colored carpet. After breaking her, arrange the pieces in an intelligible manner; she may want to put herself back together on day. Don’t hide the pieces in your pocket. Don’t buff the sharp edges. Let her get cut, but don’t watch her bleed. Don’t clean up the blood or offer bandages. You must wait 29 days after her reassembly to strike again.

So excited whenever I see PUNCTUATED BLACKNESS floating around. It was the first woodblock print I ever created back in early 2013.

PUNCTUATED BLACKNESS was designed to interrogate the labels we assign to ourselves and the ones that are assigned to us. The punctuation marks serve as different symbols of inquiry and decisiveness around identity. Punctuation is supposed to disambiguate the meaning of sentences — provide some form of narrative stability but because these markers take on different meanings in a variety of contexts, meaning is often liminal and thus unstable. Identity is unstable and always a source of inquiry.
