At many points in our life, we will find ourselves at crossroads where decisions change our path.
Sometimes we make the right decisions and sometimes not. This piece comes to terms with standing by decisions and removing the "what-ifs" from thought.
I infuse my work with bright colors, which inject optimism and reactivate a mindset. I often represent filters flowing through my subjects in tightly organized clusters of symbols inspired by binary code, pop culture, archaic lettering, mathematics, alchemy, and my personal iconography.
The symbols and the agonizing process to cluster them neatly represent a way to come to terms with simultaneous realities of connectivity, chaos, and conflict between man, technology, and nature.
The process of repetition is cathartic and gives me a way to organize this chaos and conflict, infuse harmony and stability, and renew hope that mankind will find a way to create a sustainable planet where life and technological advances can live in balance.
