Artist Statement

It’s hard to say how James Marshall (aka Dalek) got to where he is today. He really doesn’t like to talk about it. So what is left? What are Space Monkeys? Where are they from? Are they born alive or are they incubated in egg-like vessels? Why do they smirk at us as if they know something we don’t? Even when they are suffering from what would be moments of human weakness – like a hole in the head or a recently amputated limb – they continue to smile and stare, assuring their control of the moment. Why do they always march to the left? Is there a mothership calling? Are their hearts situated on the left side of their bodies like ours? We can only guess. They stare at us with one large orb of an eye, unintimidated and steadfast in their mission. They eye of the Space Monkey can threaten like a cocked and steadied gun – it can insult you without warning, or invite you into a happy, carefree world. (Jonathan LeVine Gallery)
