Giraffes are vulnerable because mankind continues to hunt and urbanize the regions where they live. Urban habits are a large cause for climate change, largely contributing to the loss of their habitat.
Trees and grass plains will continue disappearing if we don't start changing our urban habits.
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.
