Q: Tell me about “I give light”
Silver is a bitch. Blinding. It’s about pain and pleasure, my addiction to electronics and obsession with substances.
Q: Tell me about “30 ft down with a quick ascent”
The title comes from the approximate depth at which one would suffer the bends if traveling too quickly to the surface. 30 ft down with a quick ascent is an ironic description of this piece as the emotion portrayed is a failed attempt at fleeing, a helplessness and broken spirit that follows with too many loses. In my recent work I am exploring the roles of prey and predator and the anthropomorphized characteristics each role can describe. In this piece the elephants represent a power stripped of it’s force, while the laxidasical cheetahs devour their prey they are personifying the victor and conqueror. The mammoth creatures are tethered with thin ropes and can easily overpower their predators, but perhaps they have given up, broken they succumbed to their fate. The collected possessions that weigh most down are thrown away in a fruitless attempt to lighten the load. Bright colors exist despite the tragedy and perpetual hope is seen in the swimming elephants, moving along from sunrise to sunset.
Q: Tell me about The collage and mashups?
The collage and mashups are simply a means to catalogue what’s been running through my head at the time. Over the past couple of years i’ve made an effort to revert back to the work I would produce as a kid with no outside influences of critics, galleries and peers. At the end of the day it’s a kid and with a camera and computer going to town.
