Meet the Artist
“Icarus and Friends” are artworks, mostly paper constructions, from a series called “Outer Wear” that I have been working on since just before the pandemic began. The pieces in this series are meant as imaginary, and futile, protective gear, protection from both the mistakes of the past and the revenge of the future. They evolved out of a love for the imagery content and printing techniques in outdated reference materials. But while the visual quality of these materials is romantic, even nostalgic, the content is often dated, projecting a celebration of humanity’s ability to exploit nature and each other at a time when that no longer makes sense.”
