Artist Statement:

This work is based around intuitive compositions and structures to show a deconstruction through surreal bodily form, inspired by graffiti writers in the Cincinnati area  Although these shapes come from an intuitive place of creation I wish to convey a collapse through the way these images interact with each other and the viewer. Both a personal collapse, and global societal collapse.
