artist statement

I am interested in questions relating to human essence and seek to explore those feelings and characteristics that differentiate us from other spiritual beings, such as angels. My inspiration comes from exploring the paradox of desire and lust. Of all our attractions and failings as people, I am intrigued by those qualities that make us human. My current work features seemingly young and innocent subjects that are afflicted with covetousness. All their fears and anxieties can be boiled down to lust. Whether it be danger of failure, a momentous loss, the struggle between heaven and earth, those eternal forces that pit man against man, man against nature, man against virtue and indeed man versus self, individually or in a group - all of them stand for lust and define us as truly human.
