My work primarily operates on tension, fluctuating between the implication of balance and disharmony.

In a way, they simultaneously pay homage to abstract expressionism and illustration.

Conceptually influenced by Roland Barthes and Paul Virilio, I strive to guide, rather than dictate, how a narrative may be constructed.

Reduction plays a significant role in the creation of my paintings, as they are conceived through the amalgamation of a surplus of concepts.

In many ways, my technique parallels how I react to perceptions in my day to day life…

My assessment of stimuli is conflicted by erratic lines of logical thought and constantly fluctuating emotional states, which I’ve learned to perceive as ‘noise.’

Through therapy, I’ve learned, and continue to learn, to communicate more effectively through simplification. Though this goes against my nature, I’ve learned that replicating the procedure in layers could yield results that more accurately represent what I struggle to articulate.

Formally, I’m influenced heavily by early 20th century art.

Vincent van Gogh, Egon Schiele, Jackson Pollock, and Francis Bacon were constant sources of inspiration during my studies in college.

Since then, I’ve deviated from a direction influenced by my professors by exploring a more impulsive side of my nature; one that refers to the Japanese animation and American comics of my childhood and adolescence.

I have not abandoned, however, the lessons I’ve taken from my mentors, the most memorable of which encourage exploration and refinement.

I see my works as a means of translation: they express and articulate moods in a code that utilizes the viewer’s own method of engagement. By simultaneously communicating through bold lines and gestural texture, I can speak intricately in an organized fashion, and I can feel more succinct in my exchange of sentiments with the audience.

After all, the narratives I describe are intended to be malleable; open to interpretation in the way dreams and distant memories may be.



WHAT MATTERS MOST TO ME IS THAT THE VIEWER COMPLETES THE STORY.
