The Seven Deadly Sins
This body of work acknowledges the Seven Deadly Sins.
In this contemporary world we are exposed to high volumes of damnable behaviours; with each sin rapidly merging into one another, seeping into the present day.
The sins are placed in cultural context of modern daily life, with the use of common, everyday objects juxtaposed together to create each image.
The Image sequence is Media Rich, full of propaganda, Television and Social Media references, highlighting the pressures society puts on all of us today.
This weight mutates into a sin in all of us.
How powerful is man? are we indestructible?
This image sequence shows a stark contrast, with a business man in an abandoned house.
The presence of the debris on the ground suggests something evil or sinister.
His stance has him fearless, moving from room to room.
Despite the dark and desolate building he still stands strong and proud.
How much longer can we prevail against evil?
The Next Chapter
The cycle of life is built on fragility. Nothing lasts forever; something dies and in that moment there is a glimpse of something new. Rejuvenation, a transition into the world unknown.
What happens following that last breath?
In everyone there is an interest and yet an uncertainty. There is a fear of disappearing, and a fear of the unknown.
The narrative explores notions of life and death, the moving from one consciousness to another in spirit.
The inclusion of a person; like a mirror, forces us to ponder, and ask of ourselves the hard questions. Do you believe there is something more out there?
One moment we are here, the next we are not. The spirits of the lost will walk beside us and guide us into the next chapter.
