Artist Statement

My practice explores the relationship between the body and brutality.

Combining unconventional mediums with materials commonly associated with a Painting practice, I attempt to employ my materials in a manner akin to bodily and visceral elements. The results leave an abstracted representation of the explored themes, rather than a literal portrayal.

Tying together the physicality of the body and the static and inanimate form of painting, my work intends to influence a viewing response of curiosity and unease.
