About The Artwork

A child makes a graffiti painting with 'peace signs' on the wall. Because there is a lot of unrest and wars in the world, it wants to show that there should be peace. The symbol designed for the British nuclear disarmament movement in 1958 is now commonly known as the "peace symbol". A number of peace symbols have been used in many ways in different cultures and contexts. In the 1950s, the "peace sign", as it is known today (also known as "peace and love"), was designed by Gerald Holtom as a logo for the British Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND), a group at the forefront of the peace movement in the UK, and adopted by anti-war and counterculture activists in the US and elsewhere. The symbol is a superposition of the semaphore signals for the letters "N" and "D", which stand for "nuclear disarmament" Disarmament and non-proliferation treaties were created because of the extreme danger inherent in nuclear war and the possession of nuclear weapons. The symbol is a superposition of the semaphore signals for the letters "N" and "D", which stand for "nuclear disarmament.

I assemble original photography, assorted papers, acrylics, oil, charcoal, ink and pencil in my works. The variety of resources I am able to use has proved indispensable to me. The biggest challenge the collage medium posed was its unforgiving lack of transparency. Finding a way to replicate the effects of transparency afforded by paint, especially water colors, was “a large victory” for me . The preparing labor shows through in my collages; layer upon layer of material remains visible in the finished pieces. I believe my body of work is characterized by my skill for reinvention. Having always loved the appearance of weathered walls plastered with peeling paint and old posters, I revive this aesthetic with hopefully a keen and professional eye. The creative objective of my work is to “make something beautiful out of dilapidation.”My tableaus explore the dissonance between old and new materials, intertwined in the most beautiful possible way to create dreamlike and melancholy images.
