Artist Statement:

This work was primarily created in response to the Amargosa Desert in Nevada on the edge of Death Valley. This extreme environment is hauntingly beautiful yet a bitter place to survive. “At Last” was inspired by the sculptural rendition of Leonardo DaVinci’s “The Last Supper” by Belgian artist Charles Albert Szukalski at Goldwell Open Air Museum in Rhyolite ghost town. I lived and worked in collaboration with the local residents of Beatty, Nevada in an effort to immerse myself in this small desert mining community.
