I think of my work as psychological realms, that depict elements of reality. I am interested in the relationships between figures, and their surroundings. I consider myself a voyeur to these scenes; watching quietly from a distance.
I also make paintings that depict disheveled domestic spaces. These works in particular engage themes of chaos, loss, and mental health. I am interested in the idea of cultural erasure, by way of war, socioeconomic changes, the outsourcing of jobs, and deindustrialization.
I am interested in the idea of subtraction; the removal of material things from a place, or the removal of individuals from their dwellings. Elements of our culture are reflected in what we leave behind. Using dilapidated interiors as a tableau, I seek to challenge the parameters of taste and engage with reality, including its abject elements.
