The Tortured Artist
Charleston, South Carolina, USA
Mixed Media Sculpture
Most of my work is representational of humans’ interactions with nature, and our eventual downfall due to the hubris of civilization, to be reconquered by nature. The clouds, precipitation, decomposition then rebirth; the cyclical nature of the universe.
This piece is an iconoclasm; the crucifix-like form is a loose interpretation of religion being overtaken by growth with the expansion of concrete thought. It represents society’s indecision to break from the confines of human ideals and the comfort of religion in exchange for a more cold secular world.
