Description
My paintings have a narrative element in the sense that I use symbolism, references to popular culture, and figures that are staged within expressionistic allegorical spaces. These spaces are visualized as a stage or film set in order to evoke a sense of cinematic storytelling, and the architecture is often exaggerated as a means of conveying an otherworldly realm that exists outside of our world. These paintings use symbols to communicate themes such as destabilization, escapism, and social progress while also maintaining a sense of abstraction and ambiguity within the picture plane. Figures are added in order to add a human component to the work, furthering the overall narrative quality of the paintings. Contrasting notions of progress, ambition, and desire with disconnection and anachronism, my work is about how we construct and engage with our reality.
