"Fragments are defined as “isolated and incomplete parts of something.” I view fragments as the ceaseless amount of ideas and emotions in which people originate and through which relationships are formed. Some pieces come together easily, some overlap creating layer after layer of complexity, while others pieces break apart. But it is precisely that fragmentation which allows for new possibilities and concepts to emerge. My paintings and sculptures combine elements of existing in a state of reality with cohesion and connectedness, to the precariousness and imbalance within ones own self and in relation to others. I want my work to reflect both an emotional intimacy and instability where images vary between subtle and intense, confrontational and restrained, elegant and raw. Therefore allowing my disembodied figures to mirror my own fragmented view of reality as they emerge to the surface. "
