Desechable: 'Arqueología'

This collection of images titled ‘Arqueología,’ from my current body of work, ‘Desechable.’ They address the disposability of objects that has become a part of our culture and the urban spaces of decay in which these objects often come to rest. The dead end streets, and forgotten fenced off areas in cities accumulate our rejected possessions, and as they deteriorate they form layers of our own human history, full of narrative.

13”x19” Prints, Mounted and Framed to 18”x24”

Fiat Lux Community Youth Art Show - Clark University

As a member of the Fiat Lux Community Engagement and Volunteering Honors Society I recently curated an exhibition of artwork from the Greater Worcester Youth Community for our annual group project. I wanted to take the opportunity to reflect on the experience and say that it has been a pleasure to see the talent and creativity in the community. As an artist, being able to see these creations brought together brings me right back to my core interest in art, which is the potential for creativity to reflect upon life, and ultimately provide happiness. Specific to my adolescence, being creative gave me a sense of individuality and consciousness, and I wish the same opportunity for the youth of Worcester.

The exhibition is open to the public in the 2nd floor of the Traina Center for the Arts, Clark University, 92 Downing Street, from February 19th to March 2nd

Bad Photographs I Like And Other Bullshit

To You The Urban Ghost:
 Every time I try
 to reconcile the distance between
 the two of us
 I realize that I will never 
 be able to completely know you,
 you elusive beauty.
 Stuck in space I will remain
 chasing after your shadow.
 Featureless and bold,
 you will remain abstract
 to me like ink
 or the sound of 
 a commanding voice
telling me to forget about you.
