"Memento Mori" - Oil on wood with antique wooden box,

Jean Labourdette



“My work is a form of self-hypnosis. Its a way of turning off cognitive thought and simply reacting. Its very meditative. It is escapism, though in a certain sense, its a form of hyper-existence- of living purely in the moment. In this way the work becomes a method of overcoming fears. That said, a large part of what I do involves a familiarization with death. My belief is that, as painful as it can be, looking directly at death helps you to live your life with intent and purpose. In this light, the work I do delves into a place where the lines between life, death, fantasy and reality are blurred.”

-Jason Borders, Portland, Oregon.

This incredible skull carved from amethyst and agate crystals, is 7.6 inches long from front to back, and weighing just over eight pounds.
