Artist Statement

Intersections: Crossroads with Anxiety and Humanity 


The powerful relationship between humanity and personal anxiety motivates my desire to make art. Over time, our corporeal reality evolves into deeper relationships between the physical body, metaphysical mind, and infinite universe. At this stage of conscious realization, our interconnectedness and over-reliance on emotional limits dominate humanity‚Äôs hierarchical paradigm.  


I endeavor to make anthropological qualities beautiful while exposing universal relationships between human vulnerability, anxiety, and mortality. The repetition of figures is purposeful in representing the constant cycle of anxiety and panic attacks experienced throughout time.  


The use of biological imagery communicates the idea that our humanity is based on common organic elements within the universe, transforming our physicality amidst the effects of anxiety among us. By contemplating our collective consciousness and relationship to our surroundings, I expose cyclical patterns of human existence before and after experiencing physical unease.
