Artist statement;


In the brown and blue works I began to explore visual complexity and ornamentation in conjunction with my prior interests; which have long been rooted in contemporary trends in figurative and portrait based works, as well as fringe images of the body, either in medical illustration or cartoons. I believe this push towards excess propels the figures in to another space, and permits the psychological possibilities or fantasies of the figures (or those embedded in the narrative) to operate outside of normal spatial conventions, and in short become uncanny. My goal was to make each new image more seductive and self-indulgent than the last, while still challenging notions of pain, violence, optimism, and beauty
