Artist Biography:
In a world populated by multiple life forms, beings must coexist or compete with one another in a race to the top in order to stay alive. The winner of this race will become the most prevalent being on this planet, therefore lowering the status of these "lesser" beings, but how far will we go to make our dominance known? Satori captures the inevitable fate all living creatures must face: death. Life is warranted to those with meaningful lives; at least this is what we often believe to be true based on our interactions with the world. It is when we are face to face with the death of "insignificant" creatures that we can begin to eliminate our differences and see that life is both equal and beautiful. Life is fragile and exists on many levels, but is its purity lost through appearances which differ from our own? This series of work immortalizes the spirit of a lost life through the power of the still image." -Dylan J. Graham
