obsidian gallery, Cella Gallery



My work is an ongoing exploration of the dialogue formed around resistance to expectation and perception. The space between wanting to divulge information and the refusal to converse is what frustrates me. My work discusses the confusion that develops within romantic, platonic, familial and social relationships influenced by macro-norms and how that translates into various forms of (mis)-communication. Sex, gender, politics, depression, fear, anger, love, loss and social strata become characters within each piece. I set out to document the gray areas in between and examine the rigorous paradigms of what we think we know about each other.
The work has developed from my own personal experiences and those of the people who immediately surround me.  Judgment, expectation, and cultural rules play into the way we act in public or perceive each other in private. In no way do we fully comprehend what another is communicating to us, despite our efforts to understand. I catalogue how personal and social pressures influence the evolution of our ties to one another.
