Avatars & Omens (2018 - Ongoing)

 

Avatars & Omens are narrative animal paintings of guardian angels and divine messengers sent to my personal cosmos.  Acting as spiritual skins, the characters tell a story of my evolving emotional  

states.

In the personal mythologies of Ecstasy and Anxiety --Simians and serpents tangle sensually. A madonna weeps over the armadillos in her arms. Armadillos, a historical signifier for the "New World" now carry Leprosy, an "Old World" stow away. 

 

Presented as a visual metaphors the body of work touches on exploring queer sexuality and  the historical violence 

of colonization on America.
