“Art is something that moves from your insides into the
physical world, and at the same time it’s just a
representation of your insides in a different form.
Basically I just think art is just a way to think.”
Kiki Smith, 2003 PBS Art: 21
Memories, relationships, settings, situations, emotions; significant factors of our lives that shape who we are. While these factors change our being, they are at the same time subjective and skewed by our past experiences and memories.
I try to understand these building blocks of our personalities. I dissect them to their core elements and then recreate them into tangible images. This is my work, defining events, relationships and memories from my past. The imagery and the way it’s presented is both serious and comical, as are our lives. At points the objects can act as metaphors and at other times just be. Everything lies in a dream state, as do our memories. The images are vague but the emotions are understood.
