Artist Statement

My work is a mix of existentialist philosophy, speculative and established science, mythology, religion, politics, and just pure psychic washing and drying. Existence is magic; existence is hell: we are all in purgatory. Everything is one big giant food chain of nothingness, consumed with abandon.

Jeffrey Katrencik
