Artist Statement

Art is meant to be seen without filters, touch-ups or air brushing. Art is raw and it has to be the truth to what it is meant to shows. Art can be used to inform us about what we don’t want to see, such as a photograph that makes us uncomfortable or a sculpture of an imperfect body. I’m interested in what makes people feel like they shouldn’t be looking at what they see, what makes people question the information in front of them. Live theater gives art a place to breath but at the same time be as structured as another medium theater allows people to go to another lace in a more real setting then a movie, since it is live and unfiltered.
My art is to inform and to question the information we are given.
My art might not always tell the truth but it is up to you to decide what you would like to believe. My art relates to theater in the way in which what you see is what you get. There is no hiding behind the glory of editing. My art isn’t always defined by what medium it is categorized in, but what it means behind the material. It isn’t always user friendly but it never tries to be something it is not. My art might be something that one has seen before but just like a performance, it might have been done before, no scene is the same twice, no matter who is behind it.
