I paint and I draw. It’s what I do as an artist. Sometimes I
make work that I need an explanation to help myself understand what just came
out. Sometimes I find just the feelings I experience while admiring the work is
all I’ll ever understand. I make these images because I need to see what’s
inside. I feel that my artwork is the best equivalent to a video of my
subconscious. Some of it is much easier to grasp than other scenes. My work is
supposed to strike a cord whether it’s a small cord like the feeling of in
taking fresh air or a big cord like deep sorrow.
Jellyfish to me seems to express the social needs and
desires in my life. Needing friends, needing to be close but being scared to
get hurt. They seem to me to show that memorizing feeling you get when you see
someone you want to know but then you recognize that this person could possibly
Figures help me to express things more directly. I use them
when I clearly know what I want to say. The pain of losing another or that fear
of getting close to someone you look up to.
Sometimes my figures are abstracted simply because I didn’t understand
what I was saying until I had already finished the thought.
My artwork is my outlet to understanding myself. I continue
down this path because I believe others might need these windows into the
subconscious too. I make art to see myself and to let others see me better.
