Statement

My work has often focused on human psychology. Specifically what makes humans tick, what allows themselves to make which rationalizations and why. Are there certain colors or textures that create the sensations of the viewer to become a part of the art work, to leer, to gasp, or to pick. A grand majority of my family suffers from some variation of addiction. Even though addiction is struggle for the victim, personally watching loved ones experience this endeavor is terrifying and heartbreaking. Seeing how little they think of themselves and how little they love themselves is a constant battle. Their inner monster that gives them permission to take another drink, another hit, another roll of the dice just takes over; and leaves the person an empty vessel. It has been a struggle to wrap my head around this thought process. In the end, my answer for these times came through the therapeutic movement of painting. As humans we can repurpose our pain in a way that enhances the rawness of what real art is: drama.
