Artist’s statement

My work explores the physical and metaphysical bonds that have existed within the context of a ‘progressive’ society since the Industrial Revolution. Inspired by the multifaceted unison of being human, and our universal striving for connectedness, I imagine a world in which we can both celebrate and acknowledge our coexistence.
