Artist Statement Submitted 2018The process of creating work allows for long periods of introspection to take place. This introspection is important for me because it establishes an emotional foundation and provides a place for the work to grow and develop.
I am primarily interested in exploring ideas and images of uncertainty in places that exist underneath the exteriors of everyday life. I want the work to deliver an experience that is unavoidably human - something to make us think, feel and ask questions. For me, the work needs to engage the viewer in a way that will open the door to a broader range of emotional and psychological sensitivity. When I work, there is always this constant pulsation and intensity that I’m working to have reflected in the final result. I keep going until it fully presents itself on the surface and gets to the point where I cannot push it any further.
