ARTIST STATEMENT

I am a multi-discipline artist in NYC who seeks to express the fraught relationship between outward appearance and inner life through photography, moving images, and works on paper. My background in abstract drawing and painting informs my work with a focus on metaphor and ambiguity. With a collagist mentality I incorporate found and created images with nuanced and layered meanings which fluctuates between social-political issues about war, violence, social injustices against women and children, and personal narratives. As I live with the threats of the compounded horrors of a powerful embracing of fascism, war, violence, social injustices, and the climate crisis my work represents the destruction and fear I feel threatening my survival.
