“Most of my work revolves around the figure. I find the figure, especially the face, to be an endlessly inspiring foundation for both my formal and conceptual ideas. My work explores a variety of personal and social issues ranging from family to politics. Recently my artistic project has focused around the myth of the individual and our contradictory dependency on one another at both the personal and macro level.”
His solo artworks are represented by William Havu Gallery in Denver, CO.
