At the End of the Tunnel


Staten Island, New York.

I’m leaving in three days and I’m not ready….

Leaving It All Behind

I went to the hospital this week to visit my father who had been quite ill for some time now.  He looked weaker than before but he was actually on the mend and being released the next day. For a man of eighty years he seems tougher than I can imagine. We’ve never been close; [...]

Another Bad Creation

Your Security is My Insecurity

Tottenville, Staten Island. March 2011

Love It and Leave It

New York City, March 2011

What is it about me that makes me leave the things I love, the people I care about and venture out into uncertainty? I know the grass isn’t any greener nor does the air smell any sweeter. I love this city, it’s my hometown but after a few months I [...]

Free Exhibition Poster

So to celebrate my current show in St. Louis I will be giving away five signed posters! The first five people to email me their postal address at damaso AT will get a poster! Sorry I can’t do more but postage being what it is and my paycheck being what it is I’m sure [...]
