ARTIST STATEMENT
''some people feel very strongly about art–specifically film/theater/media being functional vessels of escapism. they seek to go and be engulfed in a fictional world for a period of time rather than deal with the dread of living / my art looks to pick at reality, like a scab, to flesh out fleshiness and explore critically unexplored territories. my art, whether film or theater or any other form of media i use to create, has a rhythm, a heartbeat to underscore each piece with the use of the critical, the unsettling, and always challenging realities and imagined worlds through visual minimums or somewhere in-between or even put together realities with the minimum, this art-making looks to blur the line, or rather, destroy the line between any binary, because most things are far more complex and that is what i look to engage with, and always from a radically active lens…my art is blackness, it is media and music and melancholy. it is film, work and play. sustainability has come up in my artwork in grad school in a new light, similarly to the performance artist side. I am motivated by resistance. I like to be the last person standing. I like working collaboratively to ensure that everyone is on the same page.  i must be active, progressing and never ceasing to engage the work to ensure a sustainable future we should all see.''
