Project introduction


Flowers for donald is a series of digital photo-montage works I began in the days following the U.S. Election. They borrow the symbolic potency of flowers to act as anchor points of protest, memorial, and self-reflexive connotations of enduring beauty within the traditions of art history.


These pictures propose a platform of Dada revivalism as a means to question the function of art in our new era. Through the appropriation of contemporary visual signatures of news and social media, as well as an aesthetic anarchy and the enforcement of blatant artifice I apply to each frame, these montages reflect current day conditions defined as an After Trump (A.T.) American society of media spectacle.


These pictures engage with two commonly held truisms of the role of art: to portray beauty (using flowers as a common symbol of beauty), and to hold a mirror up to our modern world. These pictures exist in an intersection where these two truisms collide in paradox, insofar that these two goals cannot occupy the same aesthetic space within our current political environment.
