Artist's statement

Full Artist's statement

Investigating the primal instinct to move and to be competitive, my work examines themes of confrontation, reflex, territory, and interaction. Through the turbulent marks on paper and canvas, I am exploring heavy, weighted mass, stillness and aggressive movement, as well as the tension in silence and the chaos in volume. My work considers pushing the body to and beyond its limits, its reactions from threats, and the emotions that drive us to compete.
