Focusing on social narrative, my art explores the constructs of identity, communal space and language. I work across media—though primarily with drawing, collage, printmaking and video—to create both figurative and abstract works in series. In each series, I bring together figures, geometric shapes or textual elements to create new rhetoric—examining the individual as a complex social product. Often, these explorations take place in specific spaces (i.e. public housing, hospitals, cemeteries) to examine connections between the individual and the larger social networks they operate within.
