ARTIST STATEMENT

An underlying theme in my work is the investigation of the concept of “Self” particularly how the “self” relates to the environment. My works are deeply informed by my cultural background, religion, and politics. Borrowing from rituals and nature, sometimes infusing humor, I integrate contradictory concepts in pieces that visualize “Self” struggles. I use the mediums of photography and video to document intuitive moments played out within specific spaces. I make visible to audiences the view in my mind’s eye—reflections of my emotional, psychological, and subconscious experiences.
