of an internal dilemma where instinctual self-protection challenges the desire to be understood in the clarity of total disclosure...
I am deeply engaged with the human response to that which threatens the well-being of an individual, but more specifically: self-protection. In my experiences, I observe the safety of self-protection in numbers, layers, noise and an automated fight or flight mentality, all of which come together to form an ulterior, visual distraction.
My work is a discovery of material and self-awareness through frantic, semi-automatic scrawling shrouded in-between layers of a discretionary show and tell.
I seek to take cover, de-escalate and resolve; distract, protect, camouflage, escape, survive.
