Artist’s statement

I explored the issues of irony and paramnesia in today’s contemporary society. I wanted to express someone 'remembering the future’ incorporating the compelling sense that you have experienced a new situation previously accompanied with a strange weirdness. Through storyboarding and planning conceptual framework ideas of irony and déjà vu, I compiled the prediction of things to come. To support the notion that art imitates life I selected Electric chair and Green car crash, by pop artist Andy Warhol, as the major components in the character’s parallel memory journey. I found the experience enjoyable and hope people find it entertaining and thought-provoking.
