My work focuses on hallucinogenic ideologies within outdated systemic capitalist structures in the displaced violent fun house of westernized aesthetics. The mirror is anthropomorphism. What is our living reflection of the defunct power dynamics found in the aesthetics of the long strung out terms, Patriarchy and Capitalism? How do we pick these splayed topics up off the floor and transcend through the prison of aesthetics. In this hot house of western ideology - does the visual or material excrement of any decade that upholds these racist-sexists values hold us prisoner, on repeat for all eternity. DEFINE US. Radical individualism vs. the commonal experience rock together side by side – waging, waxing, waning. What is this image looking back towards us in this mirror, taking life and president over our priorities, directing us - decorating us? When aesthetics are resurrected from the archive of nostalgia, what are the solutions out of this or-DEAL?
