Artist StatementIn this information age, humans are decidedly less personal and interactive. Narcissism, anxiety, isolation, and depression, amongst others, are traits perpetuated in contemporary culture and are themes I investigate in my bodies of work. I do so through the distortion of anatomy to create brutish, fleshy figures as a satirical representation of the technology-oriented generation of modernity. I attempt to construct universal scenarios for my figures to inhabit and passively encourage my viewer to relate or self-reflect upon both a grotesque and humorous portrayal of society. In conjunction with my comparatively vague figurative works, I am also interested in the deliberate isolation of particular moments in vernacular youth culture. I value this as an equally effective form of communication as they are presented in a manner which warrants extended meditation.
