DESCRIPTION: This black, white, and grey photo silkscreen depicts a room with two visible exits. The door-like exit in the left hand side of the image is rendered in a simplified, linear style, and a man made of geometric shapes (circle for a head, squared off block-like arms and legs) is running out of the room. In the centre and foreground of the print, a human figure holding a camcorder stands still and is seemingly recording the world around them. In the right portion of the picture plane, a man with a camera around his neck steps over debris to enter the room. ARTIST STATEMENT: “Things Fall Apart” – 18 mixed media prints. These photo silk screen prints were developed from photos I have taken from 1990 – 91. My sources have been found on recent travels in Europe and visits to London, New York, and Berlin. The images that I collected and subjects chosen include the Holocaust, graffiti, caged animals, mannequins, and people in institutional, public, and private settings. The prints are about the barbarian in us all and the divisions, boundaries, and walls that are built inside and outside. We live in a moment that is ill defined and devoid of meaning and culture, where the viewer can no longer see the viewed and as a consequence things fall apart.
