Artist Statement

.

My work is an exploration of my instinct as it sheds light on my spiritual and emotional landscape. My intention is to unlearn my feelings of existential aloneness and bridge with the world outside of me. It is important in this process to begin with the personal spirit or drive and find the collective nature of humanity within.

.

I have a perpetual curiosity of myself and of humanity, and my art acts as an extended appendage, reaching towards what I am about to know. The abstraction is, therefore, a form of therapeutic future reflection on my life. I look back on my work and see the many hints of “knowing before knowing”.

.

Influenced by esotericism, eastern theologies, queer feminism and a joyfully sardonic nature, my current bodies of work illuminate my ongoing adventure past the limits of gender expression.
