Curator’s Comments:

 

I’ve spent quite a bit of time looking at the Pink Buddha Baby series of photographs, which appears to document a performance, and I’m frankly mesmerized.  The related digital illustration Okey Dokey seems to be a culmination of the merger between the overstated sacred and profane.  I read a mischievous breaking down of social norms and beliefs in the exaggerated heads sitting atop the pajama clad Buddha.  The cinematic relationship between the dominant and saturated pink and barren landscape also somehow seems to be a pointed or undermining societal statement.  Whereas there is a disorder or destabilization expressed in the photographs, Okey Dokey restores the visual, if not social order.  The radiating design, with its karmic constellation, recalls tradition and balance. The jewel like coloration against a pale blue sky further emphasizes the contrast between spiritual and monetary wealth, but again, I read humor in the costume/sneakers if not title of the piece. The large scale of this work no doubt imparts a more overt expression, teetering between piety and transgression.   I realize this series was created several years ago, and wonder where, if anywhere, it has taken you.  Please consider adding new work to the site!
