Ethics of Metaphysics

Joshua Adam Risner's avatar Joshua Adam Risner

My entry is a two panel painting series titled Ethics of Metaphysics. The theme of this series is: searching for the spiritual in a continually secularized world. The title is derived from the philosophical writings of Theodor Adorno. The symbols I use are both esoteric and art historical. My influences include Anselm Kiefer, Odd Nerdrum and Joseph Beuys. I included two videos. One is a video of my entry and one is an example of a previous gallery installation with older work. Thanks for your consideration.
