And the rest is rust and stardust.

Hope Ezcurra is a museum registrar, self taught artist, and freelance curator, focused on decay, diversity, and environmental issues.
Ezcurra primarily creates memento mori (Latin: remember you must die) artwork. She is drawn to creating macabre imagery in part because of its universality; entropy and death is both what links all life together and tears it apart. Her artwork speaks to the terminal elegance of life and fragility of nature. Using the lens of visual art she examines human mortality and natural occurring entropy through a death positive perspective while simultaneously concentrating on the venality of environmental degradation caused by our consumerist society and how it intersects with racial inequalities, colonialism, and class disparities.
Her curatorial projects and art work are a love letter to the rust and stardust in all of us.
