Truthful Witness is a collage I created for Allyson McCabe’s new book, Why Sinéad O’Connor Matters. University of Texas Press is the book’s publisher and it is in stores now.

If you are in Philadelphia, please join Allyson, Sadie Dupuis and myself for a special book release event on Thursday June 22 at Head House Books. If you purchase a copy of the book, you will receive a FREE limited edition print of Truthful Witness, signed by myself and the author. The prints are on 100lb uncoated cover stock.. While supplies last.

Head House books is located at 619 South 2nd St, Philadelphia, PA 19147. The event starts at 6:30 PM. We hope to see you there.

I created the collage using images hand cut from old magazines with an exacto knife. I then dry adhere the pieces to paper with a gel medium. The size is roughly 12 x 18 inches. I completed it in June 2023. The title, Truthful Witness, came from the last chapter of the book.

I am a big fan of Sinéad’s music, so it was a real honor to work on this piece for the event. Thank you Allyson McCabe for reaching out to me. And I must say that I have read the book, and it is really excellent. I highly recommended it.

Also, to stay up-to-date, follow me on instagram, twitter, youtube and facebook. Likewise, I have a few new prints for sale over at my webstore, so please check those out.

Additionally, for the music side of things, follow my band Mighty Joe Castro and the Gravamen on instagram, facebook and spotify. We have been in the recording studio recently and have more new music coming your way soon. Until then, stay tuned.
