Statement

 


STATEMENT

I approach my art with thoughtfulness and am quite invested in changing minds and expanding awareness of social issues. I hope that I can captivate a viewer with a strong 2 dimensional image or sculpture and stimulate curiosity and evoke empathy. I do this in a variety of mediums from pencil to paint to work in steel. I choose to use sarcasm and humor to make a point even if the topic is horrible. While it may not be a humor that causes out loud laughter but more subtle and entices a smirk and a nod of understanding.

"Unconcealed" Exibition Artist Statement

 I think the idea that weapons are needed to keep the peace is a disturbing concept. I wanted to explore this controversial topic in depth, so I decided to take a shot at participating in the gun culture while trying to remain receptive and detached. I began by attending a gun show and later arranged an opportunity to shoot a variety of firearms. Having a weapon in my hand I feel I finally got what "gun control" really is. I marveled at the seemingly "automatic" power I had while being armed and how easily I could have controlled the fate of another. While I understood the capability I had to keep the peace I felt I also held the potential to simultaneously destroy it.
The gun show is a place where touching, holding and caressing is encouraged. This is where I witnessed gun lust first hand.
My conclusion, there are no machines in the world that are so varied, so beautifully sculpted and yet equally so disturbing as firearms.
