Artist’s statement: I’ve always felt they were God’s greatest creation, so my work evolves around women, their natural allure and the insecurities or confidence created by Pop culture. Simply stated, my work is a reflection of society’s idolization of beauty. I can’t imagine being a woman in this world. Everywhere you turn you have these “perfect” images that are supposed to represent an image every woman can relate to. Everything has to be perfect. But if you’re not perfect, there’s always plastic surgery, Botox, makeup, jewelry or fashion accessories to provide some sort of remedy.
With that foundation, I use high end fashion magazines to clip and surgically collage the perfect pieces together to bring my creations to life. From here I recreate everything and paint these beautifully insecure souls onto the canvas. If I have to label it, my focus is definitely surrealism, consistently fused with elements of hyperrealism and cubism. My work is simply a reflection of the surreal, superficial times we live in and I want to suck you into my world, even if it’s just for a brief moment. I want my work to consistently spark complex dialogue, captivate the viewer’s senses and most importantly, question the importance we place on outer appearances.
