Works

Vivid.

In this current series, symbolism and sarcasm converge with fragility in a colourful display that mimics the artifice of pop culture whilst seducing the viewer to ask fundamental questions about the gaze represented in art and media. Figurative work corresponds with abstract elements to creative a narrative that simultaneously pulls the viewer in and out of the work, reflecting on personal experiences of tragedy and triumph as revealed through intuitive marks. What is left is a visual translation of movement and experience amongst a literal commentary on the value of feminine beauty.  Exhibition is up until November 26th 2017 at the Spoke Club Gallery Toronto. Veiwing by appointment only.

The Beach Series

Created in a rustic cabin on a private beach in Northern Ontario, this series focuses on self-reflection in the forming of identity and experience. Memory, instinct, and intuition converge to create expressive works indicative of the meditative state they were produced. Titled FRAGMENTS//White-noise, these works delve deep into themes of internal dialogue, role play, and identity.

The Industry Series

Inspired by the industrial setting the works were created in, The Industry Series explores tensions between relationships, transitions into adulthood, and the structuring of identity. The abstract works serve as a narrative, connecting the figures to one another in a torrid display of energies and synesthesia, intertwining the figures in a tangible panorama of color and movement, to reveal the struggles within.

The Glitter Series

An older body of work dating from 2010-2011 this series explores the space between glamour and beauty, and would later develop into what would be known as the industry series. The series boasts a dark and brooding study of our relationship with adornment, role play, desire and projection. Mottled faces and murky backgrounds remind us of the beautiful-grotesque: The beauty of pain, the pain within beauty. The struggles to attain it, reject it, deconstruct it, judge it and most importantly; become it.
