Inspiration

After enduring a childhood full of biblical prophesies, I can’t shake the belief that humanity is doomed, that individuals are predisposed to struggle with their immortality, and that it will all end in a grand horrific event. Conversely, I have abandoned the notion that we will all get what we deserve in the end; either this wretched world followed by fiery hell, or this satisfactory world of temporary examination followed by eternity in paradise. Because I don’t believe those things, I can be amused instead of terrified. I am astonished by how humanity is both awesome and awful.
This body of work is made in amusement. I use the most historied medium known to make objects that look like our world’s vacated marks of human existence — the unearthed artifacts. This apocalyptic prediction is certainly not original. It is simply a record of my marks made on down-scaled, familar looking ceramic constructions while reveling in our demise.”
