"I was in a two day in school suspension (which is basically just sitting alone in a classroom for two days doing nothing), so I started painting, and the proctor came in and told me to stop. I was pissed off and every time she would leave the room I would add more to each piece until they were done. I was pretty angry and I felt trapped, so I channeled that into these paintings. They are all called "prison ink" because in school suspension is like prison"
