My practice is the constant materialization of reflecting upon the human experience and mortality. It is an ongoing search for the physical symbols that reveal an eternal spiritual realm and mirror the feeling of being human: whether it be the human body, bones and artifacts, landscapes and waterfowl, sexuality and Tarot, or meditations on isolation and death. I seek to express the trauma of our human actuality, both the fallen and the Divine.
