SEQUENTIAL   2018

“Sequential”-  features multimedia, digital, and sculptural arts. Using his background in Printmaking and Engineering. Killian directly is practicing an applied arts approach to this body of work, employing laser cutters, CNC routing, 3D modeling, digital imagery, and processes.

 

Throughout my life I have been attracted to the stories I have encountered ,from dreams, folk tales, iconic imagery, and people, and much of this has been expressed  my work. At an early age I questioned the meaning and purpose behind these stories and the messages they were imparting. My fascination with narrative requires me to actively seek ways to tell stories, To relate meanings through creation of conceptually based objects and installations.

My recent body of work situates human and anthropomorphic  figures as characters in a personal mythos ,  as a framework for addressing current issues faced by society.  An exploration of the moral and social interpretations of race, culture, social status and gender. With the use of traditional mythology as a foundation, I see the new work as a kind of new mythology---new stories, commenting on current issues. I search for meaning — immanent and transcendent — and attempt to tap into our need to make sense of appearances and our thirst for something beyond.
