STATEMENT

I'm a person who makes things and loves people. My work deals with what it means to be human, with what it means to be imperfect. I study the imperfection within myself, and I broadcast that into the world so that others may relate and feel closer to me and to one another, as imperfect human beings. I am most interested in communication between humans, and the failure of that communication. What happens when we love too much, and our feelings become warped or perverted? What happens when we want to get close, but we cannot? I deal with emptiness, fullness, lust, love, and abuse. I am interested in happiness, and subsequently images, text, and ideas that are connected to happiness, especially ones that have been deprived of context or emotion. Ultimately, I want to share feelings with people.
