Mania I

05/05/2019


“Mania” is a series on mass hysteria. That fervent, passionate loss of self in the adoration of another. It is about bliss, that scary moment when you become uncontrollably euphoric. These are paintings/photographs made from historical images of mania. Chosen like pressing of the shutter, edited like choosing frames in a film. They are about the abandon of reasonable thought, questioning who and what we worship. Then what follows. Historically worship can be misguided, which creates social division.
