PSYCHOPTICAL DELUSIONS

--
[ A series of hallucinogenic images : "WE ARE SWIMMING IN A SEA OF OCCIDENTAL VOMIT."

These images were part of a solo exhibit in May, 2003, at the Diboll Gallery in New Orleans.
The opening reception was May 12, 2003, from 6-9pm.

This work celebrates the differences between the natural and the artificial, between the male and the female, between the anthropomorphic and the electro-morphic. I have made it my point to view the world from "my" perspective: one of a marginalized and queerly sexual being living in a postmodern urban setting dealing with liberation, degradation, and technological renovations at a rapid pace in the year 2003. However, in doing so I am attempting to shift both my perspective and that of my audience through such high contrasts as to achieve a balance -- an enlightened state -- that can be embraced through the effects of these dialectical oppositions when presented in ways that stir the viewer into uncomfortable and somewhat hallucinatory states.

Because of contemporary technologies and mass medias, the general population is slowly becoming more and more sociopathetic: because of the overwhelming bombardment of sounds and visuals targeted towards we beings on a daily basis, the only sensory stimulation which makes us really feel is that which shocks us. That which shocks us most is that which portrays our mortality, that which stirs our death anxiety and probes us out of our daily deeds to wake up to realize that this is your one chance to make your mark, this is your fucking life.
