Late Stage, New Age
2020 - 2021
Acrylic, Inkjet Print, and Laser Engraving on Paper
Late Stage, New Age is a series of mixed-media works on paper addressing the intersection of spirituality and materialism. This series was initiated during the covid lockdown of spring 2020 and features consumer products from around my house that I used for mental stimulation, physical movement, and spiritual comfort. Many of these items are designed to operate at the intersections of mind, body, and spirit. For example, my iphone contains my notes app (mind), exercise app (body) and meditation app (spirit), though ironically makes me feel more disconnected from all of these things the more I engage with it. With an ambivalent relationship towards new-age spirituality and capitalism these pieces are both earnest and critical; with equal parts sincerity and doubt.
