Coagula Curatorial

Some are lucky enough to develop a world view through acquisition of unbiased knowledge, but the world view of many is pre-ordained by culture, or manipulated by institutions. The world today is striking in its defined sides. How can there be such distinct good and bad in the world while everyone in their heart is on the side of good? 

I'm interested in dichotomy; innocence/corruption, the infinite/the finite, past/future, good/evil. It’s fascinating how meanings can change depending on point of view. I strive for images that are defined differently by each observer. An image where their experiences, prejudices and beliefs all combine into the final experience of the work. Not just random juxtaposition or absurdity for absurdities sake. It has to make sense at some level. A level that can't always be defined.
