Here lies modern day Ophelia on an acid trip. Color dabs represent flora she gives out in her madness, as though she is surfacing amidst her own grief. A palette of natural hues is complicated by warped videotape. This tableau represents the virtual gloom & miscommunications in modern relationships. Collaged imagery, paint blobs,graphite scribbles, and CMYK VHS silkscreen combine to portray the overwhelming feeling of melancholy mixed with the overstimulation of technology in romance.
