Here is a press release that I wrote:

It’s one of the many flukes of human nature to occasionally see things that aren’t really there.  Some examples being: a cloud that looks like a horse, a rock formation that is perceived to be a giant chair, a potato that seems to be the head of a president, etc. This was the concept that inspired me to do the piece ‘Faux Wood Grain (of Death)’ in which the wood appears to be making the image of a human skull. The skull in general symbolizes a form of memento moiré, which is also indirectly enforced in the idea that the ‘wood’ seen is from a tree that would have previously been alive. A touch of irony is also added in that the wood-grained skull is on paper, which is largely made of dead wood.  This piece is part of a series I’ve been working on in which I take the same skull image and using different forms of ‘abstractions’ (color, mark-making, style, etc.) to give each one a unique context.
