My work is an exploration of themes involving the human condition, including sex, death, and our dependency on particular relationships. Through the figure, I am interested in expressing that hidden ineffable aspect of ourselves. We are all susceptible to the lure of our own realities, memories, experiences, and of course we are all vulnerable to our flesh. I think these ideas forge a common connection between all of us that is unbreakable. There is something very primitive and visceral about the need to recognize and relate to another being. We often cling to things that are precious to us, whether it is a relationship, object, or a sense of security. Consequently we tend to disregard the tenuousness of security and stability.
