Verisimilitude

This series is an exploration of vanitas with surrealist undertones. I found it fascinating that vanitas paintings are ultimately about mortality and ephemerality, yet the objects that serve as metaphors are always immortalized through art.

By using mass produced, consumable items to create the tableaux - I'm interested in elevating the profane and low culture to a sacred and pedestalized state, while questioning notions of taste and refinement and making commentary about the omnipresence objects have in our lives.
