> DESCRIPTION

Shawne Major’s mixed-media works expose how our perception of reality is colored by dreams, memory, superstition, religion, bias, prejudice and fear. They refer to the overlay of belief systems created by the individual to piece together their own personal paradigm. Through a combination of kitsch, ersatz and craft materials, junk and personal objects, he creates accumulated forms that serve as metaphors for the build-up, organization and assimilation of information. The personal objects are evidences of pain, happiness, loss, guilt, shame—all the material detritus of the everyday human experience.
