Artist’s Statement I’m currently working on a series of monotypes commenting on the human condition. Simple household objects and recognizable items from everyday life are juxtaposed with ironic texts to produce a sense of disquiet in the viewer. This unease is meant to provoke empathy, evoke memories, or encourage discussion of issues too often ignored. Lately, I’ve felt compelled to comment on social inequities. The texts and objects I depict intentionally float in an “empty” black space. I hope this allusion to the darkness of dreams or the imagination will prompt viewers to associate their own thoughts and experiences with the ideas my work conveys.
