Lives and works in Jersey City, NJ
“My work reflects my continual fascination with the natural world and its context within contemporary Western culture. My paintings collectively examine the current state of this relationship where the tangible reality of wilderness and wild animals has come to exist vastly in the modern imagination.
The realm of the mind distorts, allegorizes, and projects onto these subjects in various ways. The animals of these paintings are meant to symbolize such ambiguity as their fractured identities disperse into uncanny and surreal forms. Through these works, I intend to embrace a larger environmental dialogue and passionately explore creativity where nature retains its value as a vehicle for direct observation, understanding, and self expression.”
