Decreation is a term coined by Simone Weil, described as the program in which we “undo the creature in us”, to submit back
to God what God has given us - the self. This project has been a personal duty and life long pursuit presented to me in my early religious upbringing. Direct experience and research have broadened this pursuit to discussions around perception, the phenomenology of emotion, body awareness, and fear of death. In painting, I reflect on the answers provided in these philosophies and place upon it the important job of examining the construction of the self as well as instigating its deconstruction.
