About life and art

I am primarily interested in exploring ideas and images of human behavior that go underneath the familiar exteriors of everyday life. I want the work to deliver an experience that is unavoidably human. I like the idea of building up a surface that is very physical and intense that has this hidden underlying congestion of material. You have all of this stuff hidden underneath that we know is playing a roll and contributing to that surface layer, yet most of it remains unseen and outside of our direct observation.

Through this work, I want to confront that place inside of myself where that fear, hate, anger, insecurity and dysfunction resides. I want to explore what might be below the surface of those things - in a place where truths can be found, regardless of how disturbing or unpleasant they may be.
