Artist Statement

My personal concerns and interests allude to unfolding of contemporary political issues as well as awareness of diverse ideological cultural growth that contain characteristics of major direction in my work. My goal for a future in the arts is to objectively apply an understanding of learned disciplines and cultural deviation that I possess, to an already existing progression of cultural phenomenon of the time. I would aim to convey the physical aspects to the ideological concepts that are interdependent on existences of context, awe, and humanity. Although our history and culture continuously alter our perceptions in life, we perceive an existence that is only unique to our individuality. Our sense of identity arrives at a discourse of possibility of our cultural imagery. An artist exist via inhabitation of visual voices, she or he reveals through conditioning and process of interpretation and identity repositioning in life. Therefore, it is true that I often find myself dreaming about environments for which I could portray events as such with a new life intact, these new environments have altered what used to be portrayal for some other living experiences.
