MFA Second year painting and drawing.

I create while trying to make sense of issues that are larger than life to me.
I would like my work to operate of dual levels- as a design of beauty that can also draw one into its complexities. The act of cutting out the negative gives a satisfaction of simplifying complexities that are out of ones reach. It is in a sense mapping a jumbled mind full of concerns for the entanglement of positive and negative, good and evil - the balance of power and energy.
