Statement 2022

My work reflects a lurking uncertainty and palatable anxiety that dominate the current era. Disorder and dissociation prevail as the subjects struggle to navigate these conditions. Vacillating between fiction, dreams, experiences imagined and real, the narratives range from humorous to dystopian.

I work intuitively, and with a need for immediacy. Activating surfaces with loosely rendered gestural marks, I use a combination of acrylic, house paint, oil stick, oil paint, and spray paint to create layered imagery, which is simultaneously eclipsed and revealed.
