Flowers for donald

2016-18

Flowers for donald is a series of digital collage work begun in the days following the 2016 U.S. election. The work borrows the symbolic potency of flowers to act as anchor points of protest, memorial, and reflexive connotations of enduring beauty within the traditions of art history. The series is designed to challenge the role and function of art itself in politically turbulent times and borrows from early century European Dadaist strategies of appropriation, collage, and aesthetics of absurdity to reflect instability in political and media environments.
