Artist’s Statement

My work is focused around social dynamics communicated through the fine arts. Observing the anthropomorphization of the natural world as a visceral lens for exploring the human condition, crafting metaphors for human existence and past experience. My work questions the stasis of social dynamics, class structures and race asking viewers to examine their place within an ever-shifting ecosystem in society. 

I aim to communicate visual ideas by transforming familiar objects through a process of selection and juxtaposition to challenge our perceptions of ourselves, others and the environment.

Ultimately the aim of my work, is to make my audience understand the symbiosis between our perception of the everyday object and our psychological perception of social classes and racial structures.
