Installation in Tribeca with Earthen
Icarus, Wax on Plaster, 2016
Every day of living brings one closer to death, a return to the earth that nourishes all of the living. I view my works as my testament to death's ultimate win over the complexities and mysteries of human nature like war and disease. Despite the knowledge of mortality and the questions of existentialism living brings, there is a beauty in this seemingly chaotic and purgatorial world. This beauty can best be seen through mother nature, whether it be in the glory of the mountains or the awe of a thunderstorm, mother nature produces the most breathtaking creations that no human could ever produce. I express being fascinated by death and nature while relinquishing in the life given to the vessels we call bodies by each mark I make in my works.
