Believing there is strength in taking ownership of one’s experience, my work has a strong sense of both vulnerability and exhibitionism. Wrestling of these two ideas becomes evident as I document my process from start to finish to relate the art-making process to the powerful and flawed way emotions rush through us and the contradictions one has when developing their narrative. I aim to confront the viewer with a shared sense of visceral and raw feeling; I like to think of it as an exchange of war stories.
