Parting Martyrs in Myxoma is a video sculpture mixing mediums and moods. It smears sculpture, video, spoken word poetry, musical composition and writings working in unison to make up this unique piece. Standing at nearly six feet tall and a full five feet wide, this manifestation features chrome-like arms outstretched with handwriting reading, “My body of work cannot be contained by a body. I am just a recollection that you will never collect.” The center features a 32″ chrome styled HD monitor providing video imagery of a timelapse displaying a human chest where the heart swells in the midst of sacrifice and passion forming a myxoma. This piece is meant to be viewed as a relic or momento to what I bear as an artist. A modern crucifixion where I am nailed and fixed to my thoughts and concepts rather than a primitive cross. The video loops continuously representing final judgment from the world viewing the cycle of life. Seamlessly mixing digital and physical art, it omits a contrast that seems to be prevalent in much of my work. Parting Martyrs in Myxoma ultimately speaks to finality. An observable conviction of philosophy and inevitable condemnation.
