The subjects that I address as an artist explore the interdependence of personal identity, memory, and human relationships throughout the terrains in life. As a painter, I represent figures ensnared in environments of uneasiness and flux. The figures in my paintings are partially concealed by veiling and distortion through a painting process that involves excavating, sewing, scraping, covering, and distorting in an attempt to fracture the traditional expectations of representation and the psychological locus of personhood and identity.
