AVATARS & OMENS

(2018 - 2019)

 

Avatars & Omens are narrative animal paintings that act as cosmic messengers preluding events. Acting as spiritual skins and avatars, the characters tell a story of my evolving emotional states. 

 

ECSTACY & ANXIETY

Florida State University MoFA, Tallahassee, FL

(2013 - 2014)

In the personal mythologies of Ecstasy and Anxiety, armadillos, snakes, and apes make up the visual language of the series.  The simians and serpents tangle sensually as a visual metaphor for queer sexuality. A madonna holds dying armadillos in her arms. Armadillos, a visual and historical signifier for the "New World" comment on the historical violence of the colonization of the Americas.
