Artist Statment

In my animations, I intend to explore the spectacle of my body’s reactive emotions. With contemporaries, I share uncomfortable gut feelings about pessimistic subjects. The reactions to my animations are enjoyable to me. My creative process is driven by ideas and images. I explore the process of reaction by establishing where impulse begins in my body– the torso. The torso shape becomes figures, I place these figures in poses that are simultaneously painful and comfortable. In my animations, I distort the body into a dream-like state. To understand the workflow that I cherish, I develop trust within myself and animation.
