Statement

III. 
I am interested in the role that struggles of comfort play within our daily experience, particularly in regards to familial relationships and responsibilities and more recently, social identity. I approach this interest with visual metaphors either through painting or installation, often utilizing images of myself and my family to create allegories that are at once both highly personalized and universally resonating. In my work I strive to dive into and explore what are often un-resolvable dichotomies of human experience. Strength and weakness, gain and loss, failure and accomplishment, courage and fear, love and war. Those forces that at first glance seem to be in contradiction to each other, but upon deeper reflection reveal themselves to not only support each other, but create and cohabit one another. Even dichotomies within the works themselves (such as use of the human figure against the use of inanimate objects) seem to start to take on certain qualities of the other. The tone of the work struggling to find a place somewhere between humor and drama, aiming to capture and magnify certain tensions within a perpetual state in which we cannot be free without also being un-free.
