From Quiet to Chaos, 2011

Interpretation/Critique: Clearly, the artist was trying to convey a sense of desperation and mayhem as one makes the transition from a quiet, self-reflective night to a day lived outside oneself, bringing all of one’s inner turmoil out into the light for the rest of the world to see. It’s a bold work, especially considering the dangers the artist himself faced in its creation, working in secret under the constant threat of time out.

Interpretation/Critique: This piece speaks out against the commercialism of Easter. A painful reminder of the tragic (yet ultimately uplifting) story of Jesus, the artist’s subtle message encourages the viewer to quietly reflect upon the true meaning of the holiday.
