Latest artist's statement. For an upcoming group show in September:
The work begins as excuse to gain an intimacy with imagery I am attracted to – geared up, strapped on, hypersexualized, post-human, transitional bodies engaged in narratives of mythic conflict – and becomes a formal, conceptual, biographical, and linguistic psychoanalyzation of several issues:
The western conventions of representation, abstraction, figuration, masculinity, and mark-making.
The modern expressions of adolescence, puberty, adulthood, loss, paradox, contradiction, power, war, intimacy, and sexuality.
The linguistic dilemmas of narrative, archetypes, bodies, poetry, associations, and love.
