This exhibition is intended to undertake questions regarding dualism, self-actualization, and our perception of the physical world. The works address the development of identity, questions regarding morality, responses to loss, and constructed accomplishment. Considering philosophical approaches to defining identity and concepts of mind-body dualism, the works I am putting into this show represent a transfer of mental creations into the physical world. Their static and posed forms, a steady energy given to the materials that is not intrinsic to their unmoderated qualities, is a physical manifestation of the unnatural forms our cognition and perceptions of the exterior can take within our mind. 

Closing Reception: Friday, February 15, 2019 - 5:00pm to 8:00pm
