Piece description from the artist
I use the figure to describe the cultural movements that influence our perceptions and behavior. I enjoy studying how people form groups and how small gestures reveal people’s inner thoughts. Looking at the subject is like meeting a person in that the viewer is forced to draw immediate conclusions about the subject based on relatively little information.
