Black Phase | 2019

Black Phase is a retrospective experience of the art Spikes created when his father passed away. Since it was his new reality, he began

to become curious about experiencing the afterlife firsthand.


Rejecting his internal voices, Spikes decided to eliminate his suicidal thoughts and turn his childhood memories, nightmares, and reality into therapeutic works of art.

These works were created over a 5-year span. For this show, 

Spikes created his first interactive art installation entitled Objects From A Memory I Never Lost, 2019. The installation focused on the

nostalgia of specific objects in his childhood bedroom.
