The aim of my work is to mirror confusion on themes of identity and self-image. I strive to create enhancements of those feelings and ideas by means of imagery in text and painting. My personal histories are interlaced with concepts of gender and parenthood. Recurring inquiries relate to the instability of the self: Can I be my mother’s father? Can my brother be my sister’s daughter? Am I the parent of myself as a child? In regard to my installations, the sum of seemingly disparate artworks produces exciting results. They create a cognitive dissonance, which differs from my original intent and increase my feelings of incoherence in relation to my subject matter. An exhibition becomes a perplexing ‘gestalt’, which emboldens me to explore my motifs in new ways.
