GILT

This collection consists of simple geometric forms and ambiguous symbols created with traditional sign painting materials and technique. The process of gilding with precious metals, crushed glass smaltz and lettering enamel reflect on a culture increasingly dictated by shallow advertising and flashy surfaces. An anxiety inducing white noise is the result when our surroundings distort our definition of value and conflict with the natural world.
