My work explores social and psychological states using the human body as a vessel for investigation. I use the human body not for its representational qualities but for its ability to evoke philosophical and psychological questions about our existence. If there is any such thing or idea as truth it is embedded within the human body. We are complex in every way imaginable. Our actions and the systems we create are a testament to our complexity as a species. In my work, I focus on using the body as a metaphor for our present human condition. By creating figurative cut outs which are installed on the walls, floors, and ceilings I bring the paintings to the viewers' physical realm evoking an intimate dialogue between art and observer.
