What do we see when we look at ourselves? Living in a culture that subliminally promotes and sells dissatisfaction through products and advertisement, often it is hard to look in the mirror and not see parts, or even a whole, that is lacking.
My artwork is about that interaction between ourselves and mirror or camera lens, the space between. More often than not, it becomes about the distortion of our own self and body image and that impact. What are the factors that shape and mold the ways in which we look at ourselves and others? Combining elements of abstraction with classical figurative representation places emphasis on the fleeting interactions we have with our own image while an often desaturated color palette with specific accents emulates the emotional connection we have with ourselves.
What forms is a commentary between we choose to see verses that in which we do not, or cannot. The artwork serves as a reflection of those experiences.
