Additional Information

Artist Statement:

In this piece I examine the relationship between commoditized goods, mainly natural resources. Three images are placed in a away to suggest equality when in fact these resources should never be considered equal in value. The abuse of oil and water for monetary gain has warped our sense of luxury, placing an essential resource such as fresh water out of reach for a large part of the world.
