Artist Statement

As part of an ongoing series of which early pieces were focused on humans as a virus on the planet and the complexity of cities.

However, in the same breath, they can and should be viewed as neutral, peaceful, helpful or maybe even playful entities. These dualities, contradictions and conflicts permeate through my work.
