30" x 48" x 6.5"  (Click image to enlarge) Multi-layered Birch print and 3D assemblage

This piece is part of the series, Lush Interiors, a collection of mixed media works aimed at exploring sensual machines. The artist uses this term to describe the mechanized trappings of modern life, as we all become increasingly enmeshed with our gadgetry. Common household appliances burst apart to reveal human anatomy and vegetation, both in various states of bloom and decay. From a distance, the works appear as vibrantly colored, otherworldly scenes, but a closer viewing reveals grim details: human teeth and headless birds, rotting tissue and melting organs.  

 

The extravagantly macabre, though often comical, images represent the manner in which our intended conveniences often become burdens that weigh us down and define us in unintended ways. 

 

Lush Interiors features direct to substrate collage prints on birch plywood. The prints are intricately milled and cut by a CNC router, and then the multilayered, three-dimensional pieces are assembled using common hardware components, like nuts and bolts.
