The process of mark-making through drawing, carving or etching is the most direct way for me to translate an experience. I am interested in capturing and unraveling the dualities of everyday, urban life in my imagery.
My work consists of performance, dance, painting, and video. I have always indulged in gestural movement when it is involved with painting or materials.I like to think of my work as a choreographical combination of expression.
My work captures scenes from my neighborhood. They take an introspective approach to social
commentary, focusing on my own perspective while exploring how everyday interactions
contribute to boundaries between social groups.
My works are meditations on the search for balance between the inner and outer world, and on the perception of our impermanence; a reflection on the universality of the human experience, and on the necessity for a radical reverence for life
My work utilizes my biography not only to explore personal experience but also to provide a lens for the persistent effects of social institutions and cultural practices on the individual. Addressing everything from immigration to sexuality
Through mixed media paintings, graphite drawings, and object-oriented installations, my work
explores interpersonal relationships and the human condition to consider how one’s actions affect
the surrounding human landscape.
My artwork is about the collective perpetual quest for inner and outer utopia. To articulate my ideas
I make installations, kinetic and geometric sculptures, conceptual drawings, functional pottery and
the occasional piece of furniture.
