This body of work earnestly and humorously reflects on the emotional and physical aspects of the human condition and its twisted ironies. The images are born of a fascination with the most “unmentionable” yet ubiquitous human characteristics and the absurdity of long-standing gender expectations. Through a tongue in cheek lens, I examine the plight of everyday humans who are largely worried, embarrassed, disappointed, and burned-out. I consider my recent works as introspective self-portraits that aim to shed light on the untold internal monologues with which we are so often preoccupied. My artistic practice is driven by a love for the physical act of drawing, and a desire to create images and objects that provide peculiar emotional and sensorial experiences. The imagery is fueled by humor and spontaneity and is filled with an inventiveness and ambiguity of subject that ranges from cheekily adolescent to darkly absurd.
