Fascinating. Brilliant. Creative. Foolish. We humans, are a reflection of all these qualities, and a plethora of others. My work seeks to isolate and examine the human condition, as well as provide the viewer with a thought provoking experience into ones inner self. I find that this is best done by exposing the most intimate nature of humanity, and in contrast the carnal qualities within us all.
All of my work makes use of traditional and simple media. Carbon/Graphite is something I choose to use throughout my work as I can not help but feel a special connection to such a versatile substance. As carbon based life we share an undeniable bond with everything that comprises our existence. Art is a reflection of that existence, and I choose to create using media that is at its core reflecting us partly as well. Carbon/Graphite’s rustic nature is diverse and I seek to use its simplicity in new unique ways that helps provoke my viewers curiosity, and communicate what is our shared actuality.
Art is more than a sensation or an expression. It is an embodiment of life itself. Within my work I hope my viewers not only explore elements of our human existence but also explore the meaningfulness of creation.
