BRIEF ARTIST STATEMENT
I primarily work in photography, video, audio, and performance. Through these processes, I gather and interpret images and stories of ordinary people in an attempt to reveal the subtle discrepancies of daily life. Specifically, my artwork grapples with topics such as incongruous viewpoints of death and loss, the individual struggles and compromises within an intimate relationship, and behavior that either reinforces or challenges the expectations of gender roles.
My intention is to ask questions both about individual perspectives and larger social mores and conventional belief systems: How does a middle-aged man define who he is? What influences a young girl’s perceptions of womanhood? How does a ninety-year old deal with death, and how does that viewpoint differ from my own?
