Artist Statement:

At The End of An Action Movie is a collection of short stories about feelings. All together, there are 12 stories out of a total of 13 letterpress prints that make up this sometimes comedic and often dark collection. Each print measures 6″ x 15″ and is printed on the Vandercook No. 219 Proving Machine at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts. All of the stories are collected and stored in a hand-made clamshell box in an edition of ten.

These stories are the end result of a daily routine. Every morning for a period of a month, I would walk into Yo-Yo Donuts and order a coffee. Then I would sit down with my coffee, and compose a short story about whatever I was feeling that morning.

I no longer go to that donut shop.
