Oceanside, USA, född 1982
I choose to make work that is both introspective and relative. By translating personal experiences, thoughts, fears and relationships through multiple mediums, I am attempting to develop an intimate, yet distanced, relationship with the viewer. I hope to effectively communicate a similarity of experience, no matter the complexity or how foreign my personal experience might seem to the spectator. Ultimately, my work deals with the uncomfortable reality of what it means to be human, in the hopes of developing a greater understanding of how and why we react and tend to our daily interactions and routines.Vulnerability of the subject is an important aspect of my work, used as a tool to insight a reaction from the viewer, whether it is sadness, anger, or utter disgust. By allowing myself to engage in behavior that is deeply personal in a public format, an attempt at establishing an emotional connection is made, with the hope that the viewer will find an aspect of the work relatable to his/her own experience. Subjects such as failed relationships, depression, mortality and sexuality are dealt with in an honest and visceral manner. The infusion of humor and absurdity provides the viewer with enough distance to allow for a moment of relief from the weight of the work as a whole.
