|Series of 4 digital photographs of found objects (native branches, flowers, crockery), sculpted plaster skull, plaster candles and flame.|
My art style and techniques vary, although I am usually interested in painting and sculpture. For this particular piece however, I decided to experiment with photography which was a new media to me. During my senior studies, I have been interested in how artists communicate ideas about morality. I have been influenced by the drama of traditional still life artists, as well as Mexican and Christian beliefs on morality as both have contrasting values and attitudes towards death. I incorporated these ideals through the imagery such as the skull, candles, and native flowers.
