My art explores the confluence of the reality happening around us and the illusions and stories we create as we move through life; we often shape our perceptions based on what we want to see. This can be heightened by current events as well as our own struggles, sense of self-worth, and the expectations laid at our feet.
Much of our journey involves exploring and coming to terms with some of the deepest and darkest parts of our world and ourselves. My art encourages exploration of the light and dark, not turning away from reality but seeing it in order to grow and evolve. We construct stories of how life should go, a planned straight line of predefined actions that promise success and happiness. What we get is a series of ups and downs that are exacerbated by the pain and injustice apparent around us.
But joy and hope are not lost; they are also around us, in the time we enjoy with family, the laughter among friends, and the moments of normalcy that we take for granted. Living completely is a gift, to experience the waves of what makes us happy while we keep bringing progress to our communities and society at large.
