I explore concepts things we can’t escape – concepts like fundamental human loneliness, the authenticity of the self, and emotional disconnect. These are paradoxes I think of often, and much of my work focuses on the things I can’t easily express. I make text based visual instillations and objects from things that populate memories that are close to my emotions. I hope to juxtapose these forms with new intimacy and uncomfortablility, drawing from my own experiences, thoughts, and philosophies, in a way that feels authentic and personal.
