The door

 

An exit, an entrance

This artwork emerged after the tragic loss of my brother in 2017, and my grappling with the end of life. It centers around how the grave is both an exit from this life and an entrance into what is next. The final execution of this work is in a dosey-doe book format. It allows the reader, based on the entry point into the book, to read a visual parable that tells the story of things going to pieces or things being made new.

CONCEPTUAL DESIGN, DIGITAL ILLUSTRATION, PHOTOGRAPHY

Role:
Art Director / Designer

 
 
 

This personal project is a mixture of both digital illustration and traditional 4×5 peel apart Type 55 Polaroid film. Each series of triptychs holds a duality based on the direction in which the images are sequenced. First, things start in their wholeness and move to them falling apart. If the sequence is reversed, things which have fallen apart come back together.
