Location: Byers Gallery

Artist’s statement
PURIFICATION” centers around the development and perception of psychotic disorders and intense phobias. Through the implementation of various 2D and 3D  mediums, my work approaches vulnerability with bright colors and over-dramatism. My process for making this work is heavily texture-driven and playful. Making work that is visually exciting-- work that fully consumes the viewer in that single moment, holds greater value to me than anything. These pieces are a way for me to ground myself and flesh out my own anxieties, make them physical so they’re now belonging to me and I am no longer to them.
