Only What Does Not Cease

Only What Does Not Cease is a sardonic and childlike exploration of memory and abandonment using a vomitous neon color palette, the 8-bit graphics of a Nintendo Entertainment System, and creatures that should not be. The work calls out to He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, Super Mario Bros., and the literary body of H.P. Lovecraft, in equal measure. Partially inspired by the nihilistic machinations of Nietzsche, but mostly crafted with both disregard and disdain for gallery spaces, Only What Does Not Cease aims to remove itself from the institutional art discourse, instead finding a home with the annoying pop-up ads that you desperately try to close before your mom walks in on you looking at porn.
