An Honest Reflection of Life

The intimate moments in life are the most attractive to me: more specifically, the urban lifestyle, which revolves around this beautiful love story of flesh among concrete and rusted steel. I capture these moments with gestural painting, exploring the relationship between people and their environment. The broad expressive strokes balanced with purposeful lines mimics the complexity of life. Often times adding words, poetry or commentary to challenge social or political concerns; at the same time challenging critical thinking and forcing viewers to figure out where they fit into this world if at all.
