If you rearrange the letters in funeral, you get REAL FUN! Real Fun is a wearable sculpture collection that explores themes of death, rituals, and spirituality using paper mache and cut paper techniques. It was truly a joy and honor collaborating with the whimsical Robert Penn.
A collection graphite and charcoal renderings that present a past version of Antonius.
I decided to install this tapestry inside Vermont Studio Center's meditation hall after reflecting on the parallels between the cyanotype process and meditation. Similar to reaching for enlightenment, the cyanotype process's success is dependent on light, time, discipline, and patience. The blue gradient is a testament to my growth as an artist during those 4 weeks in Vermont.
After showing this piece in the Firehouse Studio Gallery Space, Mong-jane Wu and I decided to return the weaving to the grounds where we discovered most of these found objects. It can be found behind the Wolf Kahn Studio at the Vermont Studio Center.
A collection of photos captured in 2014 during my time abroad in India.
Inspired by the hilarious listicles often found in publications such as Cosmopolitan, I created a zine based on the best sex tips I could find. The photos capture reactions to the tip shown on the right hand side of each spread. It was an absolute blast styling the bathroom stall and models.
Capturing people instead of Pokemon. Is there really a difference though? I wonder what future generations will think about our current habits and fascinations...
Voices of Baltimore
Frustrated by the disconnect between my university and Baltimore, I decided to go on an adventure to "unstranger" people of the city. By asking community members from all over Baltimore to participate in a simple questionnaire, I had the privilege of engaging in meaningful conversations I wouldn't have had otherwise. It was a reminder that we are all humans with similar hopes, dreams, and fears, regardless of our race, age, gender, sexual, physical ability, etc. These are just a few out of the hundreds I have collected over the years.
This gallery is an ongoing exercise inspired by Jessica Hische that simply explores letterforms. As a multidisciplinary artist, I have a lot of fun switching between digital and traditional Drop Caps. You can view Hische's Daily Drop Cap project here: http://www.dailydropcap.com/
A selection of my favorite linoleum and woodblock prints.
