Artist Statement: My work processes trauma, spirituality, loss, and history through a variety of intimate means. It seeks to address human experience that begins at a personal level—be that through the aftermath of a Hurricane, or that of a loss of a very close family member— and to extend it towards a universal sensibility. The work does this through drawing, painting, collage, and installation. Each work is an attempt to archive a particular emotion based on an autobiographical experience, in order to crystallize an archetype that extends and is applicable beyond my own dreams, history, and journeys, to a broader human outlook. Found supports, such as vintage paper or photographs, provide material and symbolism that allow me to merge historical and personal narratives into one drawing, painting, mural and in animation.
