My current practice is informed by my experience navigating the conflict between awareness and self preservation. In the current political climate, the pressure and energy required to constantly stay informed, while digesting conflicting and inflammatory information has led to withdrawal as a means of mental self preservation. By utilizing larger than life imagery I portray the tension between divergent ideologies. My work depicts the desire for awareness and the body’s natural reaction to turn away from harm.
