Multiplicity Within Singularity | Mono-Print on Laser-Cut Panel | 36" x 30" | 2015
Artist Statement: Using allegory and personal narrative, I create a world in which the veil between these two points dissipates and finite meets the infinite to explore life, death, and eternity. My work focuses on new philosophies and structures found in contemporary art, in relation to the relevancy of religious discourse—from myths, fables, and biblical stories. To address concerns of religious art and explore ways to join the space between the secular and the sacred, tenants of modernism and postmodernism have been restructured in a new cultural phenomenon called metamodernism. This method seeks to embrace the wonder and mystery that is present within both the sacred and secular.
