Descrizione del lavoro

Like a caged animal or a starving newborn, sometimes we bite to feel human, to nurture ourselves, to protect, or in an uncontrollable craze. I've always written stories. Recently, I've taken my narratives to my studio and have begun visualizing my chronicles on paper and canvas. A cornucopia of stories and paintings and drawings live in the shadows of Bald Mountain. The Beautiful Grotesque is a character residing in the shadows of both Bald Mountain and my imagination, from a short story titled, "The Affair on Bald Mountain”. Here is a passage about the Beautiful Grotesque: “Beware the Beautiful Grotesque! She breeds inquiry, absurdity, envy and confusion. This nipple-sighted soul with potent citrus-scented genitalia and striped socks restlessly wanders the hillsides projecting a tabular rasa onto even the most prolific minds of Bald Mountain’s looming creatures.” My paintings react to the absurd and existential aspects of the human condition. I observe the unshakable loneliness and isolation of human existence and examine human instinct by focusing on the unique relationships my subjects share with the animal within. These investigations help me document the results of human interactions, internal struggles and the powerful influence we have on our social landscape. It is my belief that we choose to fight, ignore, give in to, or become one with, the animal within. My subjects are often isolated in composition and aggressively rendered to confront the viewer with an interpretation unique to the beholder’s own secluded life experience. I question how we relate to and form systems of belief, which ultimately fabricate our illusions of self. Philosopher Martin Heidegger described human existence as a process of perpetually falling. He notes that it is the responsibility of each individual to catch themselves from their own uncertainty. I relate this unsettling prognosis to our life-long struggle with our animal within. Studying human instinct, I describe existence as a process of taming our metaphysical bite, augmenting Heidegger’s idea of the perpetual fall with the equally unsettling motif of the caged animal. In the painting series, described below, I paint my subjects in motionless compositions suggesting the ubiquity of our incarcerated emptiness. I believe it is the eternal cages we are born within that set the boundaries of our condition and create the illusion of freedom.
