The stone is grotesque like a monkey,
The narcissus is unfeeling like ice.
The artist has the heart of a monk
Having broken the world’s chains.
I am in a search for possibilities in phenomena that pass across and within my senses. I enter spaces through my drawings and in doing so bring out a nature that otherwise I would not be privy to. Drawing allows me to reflect on ideas situated at the intersection of religion, sexuality, and social consciousness. “Layering” is a metaphor for encapsulating fragments and wholes that convey power, compassion, and the memory of time & culture.
