A Selection of Sand Paintings form 2016 #visualresistance
As a Visual Artist my work acts as a social experiment in public space to act as a catalyst of conversation. I remix both cultural iconography with biology, science, and a street art style to find familiar grounds for the metaphors presented.
Each grain of sand represents life itself in its individuality and struggle as part of a larger form, growing, expanding over time creating something beautiful.
As with any life it is vulnerable to external forces of exposure to extremes in weather and climate, micro-aggression, violence, or simply ignorance.
I invite you to ponder these images and see more through the avenues below.
