Art Description

Photography: Color, Digital, Manipulated on Aluminium, Paper, Other.

My involvement with environmental preservation inspired the creation of these works and the intent is to connect viewers with our innate kinship to the natural world.
The compositions present a unique allegory—an internal rhythm that embodies our relationship with the beauty found in nature, contrasted with the realization of human consumption and the impact it has on the planet.
The figurative form is isolated by layering contours with images of urban and industrialized environments. These compositions strive to inspire awareness to a generation where society is becoming ever more detached from the natural world and consistently more reliant on disposable technology.
Éveil – Divided, represents the average eco-conscious individual, who finds themselves challenged with pursuing a sustainable lifestyle, while immersed in an urban environment. The paradox of wanting to preserve nature, yet continuing to consume resources and live an urban lifestyle—haunted by the consequences—is a dualistic inner struggle that millions face every day. The diptych structure of the piece divides the man into two—half embodying his life within the urban realm (Manhattan) and the other half—his internal connection to beauty and the natural world. The distinct line between represents the divided state that fosters inner conflict, while offering the opportunity for awareness to influence change.

Diptych artwork is printed on to archival metallic paper and mounted to 0.08 gauge aluminum.
Limited editions of 12.
Installation system on the reverse of the piece.
