My work pertains to notions of life and self-identification. It plays upon the notion of dreams and deals with issues of self-identification and the social influences that affect how a personality is constructed. I am exploring a range of possibilities, from metamorphosis to transformation to questioning the construction of a self relayed through social phenomena, nature, animal masks, childhood toys and stories as the means to communicate my concerns. Between the reality of existence and the search for truth the vitality of my art practice is tempered. The purpose of our existence is not to meet the expectations we create of an idealized world, but to destroy the strength and virtue of ideals. The essence of life then is to search and the artistic concern in my art is struggle of identity. Social goals may continue for generations, but they are initially expressed through individuals.
