Hollow Artifacts: Paper and Wood

"A collection of digital illustrations and wood carvings designed as references and recreations of items from various pop-culture sources. Created using a combination of digital vector software and traditional mediums such as woodblock printing, whittling, and pyrography. Artifacts were selected from some of my favorite titles and range from iconic to obscure, each having left an impression on me as I enjoyed them for the very first time."

These are Hollow Artifacts, but each has a Story to tell...

Facade

"I view things that are meant to be discarded as tragic figures. The take away bag that reminds one to 'have a nice day,' the 'post it' with reminders, notes, or important dates, or even the notes, letters, or diary entries written to loved ones. They serve their purpose and then are thrown away or forgotten. Their life cycle is short but yet there is an eternal connection within these artifacts, something that is preserved even in its overall discarded purpose. I use these objects as metaphors for the temporality of ones presentation to the world. How one is seen by others. Ultimately creating an exploration of what is hidden from the world and what is actually exposed about oneself. An overall prospectus of mental illness and surface through an intimate lens of the discarded artifacts and facades of everyday life."
