Living Color: Beautiful Decay
“We are much more alike than we are different.” This one of the guiding principles of my life and my art. I am fascinated by all the similarities between people, places and things. How despite all of the empirical evidence to the contrary, we tend to hold on to the illusion that some how we are separate, disparate and individual. As with most things in life, on the surface there is circumstantial evidence that seems to prove there are some differences between us. As one digs a bit deeper the truth unfolds in her usual unyielding manner, we are one.
There is but one constant in life, art and everything in between and that constant is change. Living Color: Beautiful Decay is a observation of this truth. It is an observation of the beauty of change itself. As human beings we are driven to express our emotions, adapt to our surroundings and contribute to the conversation of life in an additive way. So we create and destroy, we talk and we listen, all in an effort to provide context to and ultimately to transcend the reality of death.
Death and decay are the forces that provide meaning and perspective to life. Nature, man and the objects that man creates are all inter-related in the inescapable dance that is birth, life, growth, decay and death. Change is required, change is necessary and change comes without mercy or vengeance…change simply is. It is my intent to record and share the inherent beauty found in the change all around us.
Included in this post is a small sampling of some of the images of man made objects from the series. 'Beautiful Decay happens to people, places and things and ultimately each will be represented.
