This is Fine

Acrylic paint on 3/4" plywood

Performative installation around Las Vegas
This version of This is Fine, inspired by the KC Green comic based meme of the same name, explores the themes of performance, protest, and the institutions that benefit from a colonial capitalist world. Through this series I specifically point attention towards Catholicism, the prison industrial complex, and gentrification. The same way the meme is used on social media, the flames in these installations signify that something is wrong even though everyone is telling you, "this is fine."
