"Between Dying and Death" is a series of mix media sculptures and installations that explore instances when the end of a human life is determined by others. Each scenario highlights different occasions when the decisions made in regard to an individual's life are beyond their own. In many instances, the value of that human life is not taken into consideration by those making the decision. Such occurrences tend to be related to legal policies, war tactics and social politics.
In "Between Dying and Death" you will find the butterfly emphasized thoughout the exhibition. These delicate winged insects represent in my work the time span from the instant the mind accepts its fate until the actual death of the individual. The goal of these violent and macabre sculptures is not to teach but rather incite empathy for those who are victimized.
