- My artwork thematically explores thought patterns, contradictions, and the cycles humans physically/psychologically put ourselves in and play into. My ceramic people have hidden parts of themselves that the viewer can observe to try and understand their point of view and perhaps empathize with their story and the feelings they express. My 2D drawings showcase people’s mental presences, fleeting memories, intrusive thoughts, or daydreams/imagination. I face-paint my body to match my style and people, to explore emotions, tell stories and become a version of roles in societies. Every day there are humans that want to deflate the world by constrictions with the goal of boring, homogenous scripted living. I hope my work can inspire vibrance and empathy so that when other humans encounter each other they uncover the story of being.
