From the artist:
“Machines Beyond Repair” is a collection of work spanning different media and format from the past two years. The pieces reflect a variety of experiences, some fairly unpleasant, that have not only shaped my artistic processes, but my entire world. Nearly every aspect of my life has changed fairly drastically and this body of work reflects exactly that, at times violently.
Loss. Expansion. Bewilderment. These are the iron horses; rusted, blazing, and broken are these machines.
