This work does not represent a revocation of any of the values or pursuits that previously governed my life. Instead it represents my finding a personal sense of renewed -albeit changed- reverance for some things. It was inspired by a quote by William Blake, where he said "The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom." With this work I'm learning balance and moderation. A broad spectrum of very human emotions are represented ranging from agonizing injury to ecstatic euphoria, as well as sentiments ranging from scathing moral condemnation to apathetic indifference.
