Forgive Our Trespasses

2012 ArtPrize Entry

Our collaborative works address many relevant issues of the modern world. Concerns with environmental destruction, overpopulation, and notions of the apocalypse, are on the forefront of our minds. Daily reminders of these issues, influence our artwork on an encompassing scale. As a whole, we gravitate towards recycled materials; these objects tend to guide our vision. When people see our work, we hope they are inspired to repurpose discarded materials. Our sculpture “Forgive our Trespasses,” fulfills this mission because it touches on the innocence of childhood, the purity of nature, and the disruption of these cycles by human consumption and waste.
