Artist Statement:

“The western sun blazing on concrete and razor wire; he seeks a moment of shelter.”

Through an embedded/reportage method, my work seeks to combine Brutalist with Romanticist imagery in an effort to paint an imaginative narrative of our modern era; one that wrestles with rapid technological advancement and radical youth-culture relative to historical notions of beauty and spirituality. This work tells the story of it’s subjects with mythos, and features characters with strong notions of identity. The effort is to capture the honest expression of one reconciling the character they have written with the vulnerable human underneath, and to construct a lore around natural and urban landscapes.
