"The title of this exhibition refers to the three marks of existence in Buddhist philosophy. This notion contends that true appreciation of beauty comes from the understanding and acceptance that nothing lasts, nothing is perfect, and nothing is finished. I identify with this vision and apply it conceptually and aesthetically into my art practice. I work from found California snapshots from the turn-of-the-century and extract from them traces of the past, everyday and universal. I bring these images forward, and through a stranger’s perspective recreate them in a future state of decay. Through this transformation, I explore our desire for remembrance against our temporal limitations, and reveal a beauty only found in the truth of the transience of all things."
