‘Creativity’ was the link I wanted to make between Darren’s work and mine, and to pass along as the whispered theme. So I decided to reference Michelangelo’s The Creation of Adam from the Sistine Chapel. Here was a pretty boy, over-perfect and cold, but I stuffed him into ample pant to suggest robust virility, and the pants became the rocky shore of New Brunswick, which is where I arrived and was lucky enough to be involved in a creative project with a fellow immigrant and mentor, John Murphy.
