Sliding Hope is from the body of work, The Baby Tooth Isn't Loose, which delves into an estranged exploration of the fault lines in human nature where uncanny disruptions defamiliarize our experiences with ordinary. From fires, to human rights violations, to technological authoritarian grips on power, the days are measured by new and concerning realities. This body of work’s emphasis is on the territory of experience that describes an endless unsettling where the mind is challenged by a mirage calling into question when it starts and stops. These uncomfortable forms of excess, desire, and hope, tie us together but also create further separation than ever before in this consummate dance to the finish line.
This works gestures of hope and a path of survival amidst utter destruction displays water as the source of all life, consequently the only way out. Today's world is a hotbed of conflict, tension, and disaster with ecological circumstances bearing catastrophic damage weighed down by human denial. Yet slivers of life survives in small symbolic tokens like the flowers in the pot, illuminating the existence of hope in the face of ceaseless disaster. The simple and direct notions the unsettling reality in a way of showing that despite our growth and immense intellectual evolutional capacity as humans we have disregard for obvious safekeepings seduced by greed.
