"In my work I have endeavored to imbue our daily experiences with heightened significance through a rigorous analysis of each subjects formal potential. My objective is to remedy our detachment from the routines of life by revealing their beauty and symbolic potential. To that end, I have brought historical iconographic traditions into a contemporary context to engage and question cultural assumptions about aesthetics, spirituality, and social responsibility." - Vince Hron
