Throughout our lives we are continually faced with light and dark; in other words the agony between the self that adheres to sacred religious ideals and the self that lives the secular and worldly life. Life it seems is comprised of interchange and coexistence, or repetition and confrontation of the two. My work captures these confused states and the ambivalence of life, believing that the alteration of various cultural and everyday objects and monumental symbols allow for interpretations that are different from their original purpose.
In this place where the sacred and the secular intersect through the combination of strange and familiar objects, the personal space of the artist is reborn as a holy temple. Thus we are faced with a temple that is unfamiliar yet familiar, and secular yet sacred.
