With this piece I bring awareness to the plight of large wild cats. They are battling climate change, facing poaching and loosing their natural habitat. If we don’t shift the course of urbanism and our consumer habits for the health of this planet, we may end up living in a world where we only get to experience these magnificent animals virtually because none will be left.
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.
Here is a great article about the choices we make and how everything we do affects everything else and places us in current global predicaments
