You may have noticed that moving over the website didn’t happen yesterday.. things didn’t quite go as planned. Working on it again today!
In just a few days, I’ll be seeing my beautiful nieces for the first time in over a year. They’ve gotten older and taller and I can tell from photos that they are on the brink of leaving childhood behind. The work of Houston artist Kevin Peterson looks at that the journey out of childhood and into a fractured world.
As children, we’re so quick to want to grow up, we can’t wait to go on our first date, get our driver’s license, go off to college, be able to sit at the “grown-up table”. But isn’t it amazing how swiftly we would go back to swing sets and school holidays, once we get a glimpse of the cynicism and cruelty of life among the full grown.
While entering adulthood has its carefree qualities ( hello, ice cream for dinner! ), there is a delicious freedom when you’re a kid that only grown-up children can recognize.
