By being anonymous, I refuse to allow myself to be fully contextualized. This deprives the viewer of an opportunity for greater understanding and appreciation. In an attempt to maintain separation between my physical life and my artistic space, I necessarily withhold a certain level of vulnerability and commitment, both of which are helpful in any would be relationship. Let me explain. If your preacher gives a wonderful sermon, how wonderful. But if you come to find out he’s been molesting the neighbor’s dog in his spare time, are you not likely to interpret his next sermon with a bit more, shall we say,  skepticism? I molest dogs, is what I am trying to tell you. Now despise me.
