about

"My work is homage to awkward hugs, accidental touches and open-eyed kisses. The small moments between grandiose gestures that reveal honesty and vulnerability; these are the moments I am infatuated with. Art history has painted us as beautiful, but we are rarely gorgeous. When we border on animals and brutes, we become ugly, forthright and captivating.

We script our lives now more than ever for public consumption. Edited, cropped and untagged, we organize our public image. In contrast, human interactions are distorted, vulgar and awkward. In an age of constant self-awareness, I seek vulnerability and sincerity. By using images of intimate moments, I make a transient action more permanent, sobering and relatable. My work is a celebration of the non-ideal and an exploration of my own unease and awkward fascination with human behavior and animal instinct."
