I ve been interested in the ways of social and personal issues intersect and collide. The socio / political environment is diverse and contradictory in ways that are interesting to examine and to de-construct, and may lead to better understanding why it can be so difficult to feel connected to the larger whole or, even to oneself.
The scale and complexity of the social and political constructs are held together and split apart through an ever wider range of communication platforms, which seem, paradoxically more socially dis-integrative than ever.
The portrait series reflect my social observations and internal responses to what I see around me.
I believe the sense of loss, of disconnect and isolation, of aggression and degradation, seem widespread in our civilization now. Responding to this from my own experience, and reflected in people I see around me, represents an attempt to connect, or at least understand better what it might mean.
