Acta Non Verba is a physical representation of internal revolution.
The incantations we speak to ourselves as a means of self-preservation manifest here
in immaterial items, fused together in an epitaph of ephemera that honors what once
existed in the places we now stand. Religious imagery throughout art history has played
the role of storyteller to communicate narratives that are bigger than the image.
The reference for this work is based on a catholic sculpture of The Madonna; a figurehead
that is recognizable beyond religion and becomes a visual depiction of the martyrdom
we cast upon ourselves when we venture out of the blue and into the black.
Traditional oil painting techniques merge with non-traditional materials such as confetti,
multichromatic pigment mixtures, markers, sidewalk chalk, and metal sewing notions.
The unknown and the unaware join hands to question change and the nonlinear progress
that goes along with it.
