Artist Statement

Title: Novus Ordo Seclorum

There are two sides to every coin. What’s good for one group of people might not be so good for another. “Novus Ordo Seclorum” explores how to build a better future—not from the vantage point of the common citizen—but rather from that of a totalitarian regime. Inspired by Orwell’s fictional “1984” and a barrage of factual news stories gathered throughout 2020-2021, this tarot-themed artwork peers into the not-too-distant future to divine the foundations and machinations of the coming world order. Only by understanding the very real dangers that threaten our freedoms can we work together to build a better future.
