I’m So Glad I Got My Own (Natural High) is a show of work that has been made over the past year that includes experimental approaches to painting and materials using intuitive processes that references tantric art in India, musical influences such as Sun Ra, Genesis P-Orridge and Curtis Mayfield, and alchemical possibilities in colors, materials, and repeating forms. The exhibition’s title is a reference to Curtis Mayfield’s No Thing On Me (Cocaine Song).
