Artist Statement

My current artwork explores the delusion in control, trust, passion and possession. What is the reality of such convoluted desires?

 

In these works I explore my own darkness as it realtes to personal relationships. To explore my perception of these feelings I use performance, video art, photography, drawing and sculpture in my art practice. Each one of these mediums offers a different lens and fluidity through my inquiry.

 

It is my hope that my work questions and illuminates the correspondence between acts that our society associates with discust and primitive barbarism, toward a deeper understanding of the complexity of human emotions.
