Kali Yuga Blues

Kali Yuga Poster

This new body of work returns primarily to the emblem of the skull as an essential human signifier. Stripping away surface appearances of flesh and form, the skull denotes a universal humanity in its most material essence. Upon this essence metaphysical and esoteric conjectures are projected as a means of considering the human condition. Pop culture inflected aesthetic borrowing heavily from punk and psychedelic rock music is presented as a creative yet dissonant response to a culture of mediated apocalypticism and presents the state of being a perpetual and petulant drawing of light out of darkness.
