artist statement

Decline has a strange magnetic quality. There is a frantic energy, a curious tension in the moments when things start to fall apart. This decadent energy is what compels my work: when traditions become hollow and artifice protects. Most recently, I have focused on how individuals and cultural constructs react in these turbulent moments as a shift in power is foreshadowed. I question if a desire to fend off the fall even exists after the death rattle has already begun.
