FILTERS OF YOUTH


This work speaks to the pleasantly blinding effect that innocence has on our perspective – prior to its erosion – and to the idea that even though our blinders may be on, the heavy social circumstances surrounding us during any stage of innocence will invariably shape our interior development.

FORMATIVE YEARS


Psychologists speak of the first five years of a child’s life – termed “formative years” – as being the most crucial where concerns the development of his/her mental and behavioral patterning. This work asks: To what degree do we have the power to re-shape the way we were initially formed?

This is a 360 degree piece. Please click for detailed views of the box and to read my additional thoughts related to its creation!

Formative Years is currently on exhibition at Alp Galleries in Frankfurt. If you are interested in owning this work, you may be in touch with the gallery directly. It is 1,000 (EUR). Link provided on the next page. MORE

DOMESTIC BLISS


This work speaks to the illusion of the American Dream.

I always find myself attracted to advertising from the 1950s and 60s, with its optimistic nature and its transparent agenda, yet also for its ripeness with the “everything is dandy” smiles and emotional facades that may have infiltrated society as a coping mechanism post-war. The central focus of “Domestic Bliss” is the bear-masked, knife and party horn holding 1960s housewife, attached to a piece of toy Wonder Bread. The four drawers of the work serve as sneak peeks into her daily experience. Click for detailed views of this piece and to read my additional thoughts related to its creation.
