Artist Statement

Thematically speaking my work is objects or figures entangled in a scene. The action of these scenes is typically focused on a humorous voyeuristic tale of "What if this was happening?" The takeaway of "Why would that happen?" and "What would it mean?" reveal themes of alienation, inadequacy, approval seeking and social anxiety. The work is loose and immediate to pinpoint the conception of this cryptic duality. The undercurrent of self is exposed while being propped up by what it could be on it's own.
