Lachesis' Order: Current Project
My recent body of drawings relates to an overall series of work that explores the idea of superstition in relation to compulsiveness. In the drawings, I repeat the forms of otherwise banal objects: feathers, scissors, folded paper, and umbrellas. The feathers act as dreamcatchers and the folded papers form “fortune tellers,” a childhood game that supposedly predicts the future. The objects are given weight through the context in which they’re imagined, acting as relics that symbolize birth, regeneration, and death. The overall series of drawings is a nod to forces out of my control that can influence or impact the everyday.
