Statement

“In the contrast between flight and fall lies a duality in contemporary male identity. We live in a time where masculinity is in flux, weighed down by the gravity of the past, with the possibility, an expectation, of letting power go. New men are in a liminal space, outsiders. Traditional ways of being male are being re-examined, discouraged and carry loss. New ways of being are unclear, asks for the obliteration of legacy – the same source from which we construct our humanness.

My work is centered in masculinities or maleness. Previous works have been pointedly political or conceptual, themes of social justice or social constructs evident. This new work is more personal and poignant for me, the contortions of the subjects’ bodies inviting more interpretations.”
