In paintings, sculptures, photographic installations and writings, my work explores society’s interpretations of affection and intimacy, documenting an individual’s attempts in reaching emotional reverence under the pressures of modern technology. Referencing and applying medical and scientific practices, manipulated enlarged microscopic reproductions form an array of digital abstract images that disguise and expose the realms of male exercise rituals. Similarly ornate paintings concerned with the projection of muscular torsos and yearning for companionship interacted across contemporary media apps, are enshrined in portraits comprised of body-enhancing compounds and flavourings suffused with flowers, collages of boxing iconography, and industrial materials. In contrast, envisioned landscapes of bodily forms on pigmented crystals noting Victorian pain medications, forming an alluring utopian vigil for suppressed and lonely individuals to seek solace and convalesce in. Imbuing a crescendo of personal imagination and evidence, I seek to communicate comments about digitally-connected societies, relationship between science and art, technology and the body, autistic neuropathways, and pursuits in beauty or hope, composing testimonies of those seeking to be understood or loved.
