Ink drawings

Through these ink drawings, I consider the creation of meaning in a world that is seemingly flooded with banalities.  My task is to find meaningful moments or exchanges in either the most arbitrary of objects - a toothbrush or a dried flower - or heavily laden images and symbols that have been imbued with meaning over time, like tattoos or alchemical imagery. In his Lyrical and Critical Essays of 1968, Albert Camus stated that "accepting the absurdity of everything around us is one step, a necessary experience: it should not become a dead end.  It arouses a revolt that can become fruitful.  [It] could help us discover ideas capable of restoring a relative meaning to existence." Drawing from this notion, I believe that significance lies in the smallest of details within a person's life.  It is up to each person to create pockets of meaning in a ocean of absurdity.
