On highway 65 in Southern Indiana there is a set of 6 wooden billboards in various states of decay. Drawn to the aesthetic of their faded colors and textures and the history of what was once hand painted on them, I made several pilgrimages in efforts to document them. That winter a friend died, an artist named Stephen Irwin, who had been an influence on my life and my art practice. In the snow I spent a final afternoon with the billboards while mourning the loss of Stephen. The images that ensued are my homage to him, meditations on change, loss, and architectural perspectives toward the sky.
