Artist Statement

An anesthetic is any agent that causes a general loss of sensation. You do not feel things when you’re ‘going under’, it’s just a woozy unconsciousness. For that moment, you’re less human since ‘feeling’ in all the ways we do contributes to our essence as a species.

My artworks aim to do the exact opposite of that. Through simple, honest elements like mark-making, colour and lines I make the viewer more human by letting them feel more than they allow through their inhibitions. Lately, I feel like society has become that aforementioned agent, and my pictures give them a break from that.  It becomes the ‘art’-idote.
