The number three has always been very prominent throughout time in creativity and beyond. It has become a reoccurring theme in my work as well. The backbone of story telling is having a beginning, middle and end. Three represents completion in many ways including the birth, life, death cycle and of course the trinity in many religious mythos. I wanted to unfurl the concept and explore what it means to overindulge in something. To be pulled to keep going back to an action or entity even knowing the result will be harm, whether you, to others or both. The susceptibility, realization and lastly, judgement is something I wanted to present with this piece and I hope I have done that.
The Third Time’s a Harm was part of The Fathers of Undoing trilogy which was the center point of The Third Time’s a Harm Exhibition this past October/November. This piece is the third and final part of the cycle of susceptibility, undoing and harm. The entity emerges once you are unraveled and harm is all that remains. This was also one of the pieces brought to life in the video installation The Fathers of Undoing: A Visitation.
