I intend to bring a dissonant charge to the work I create. Playful and quirky on the exterior, my work uses whimsy as a device to draw closer inspection, leading to greater awareness and introspection among viewers. Once engaged, the viewer often finds evocations of the dark matter that is the underbelly of human existence, striking a primordial balance.
My works exist at the intersection of visual and performing arts, poetry, technological innovation, and explore social issues like gender perception, sexuality, violence, loss and motherhood.
I turn the traditional medium of painting and sculpture into a multi-dimensional and immersive experience for the viewer, creating multimedia performances, installations, animations, and mechanical sculptures based on my paintings.
My images are inspired by the Surrealist and Dada approach, with the subconscious taking the lead, and leaving analytical thinking behind, and by embracing the nonsensical and surprising. Though it stems from my specific experiences, my work aims to speaks to the nature of being, to the heart as well as intellect and to be accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds.
