My work is an unfolding meditation on the themes of discipline, emancipation, and deliverance. Formed by personal experiences of incarceration and deprivation of liberty, I employ a rigorous and systematic methodology to introduce control and precision into the sprawling chaos of a disordered world. My work incorporates a deep redemptive component in process and outcome. I consider painting an urgent salvific act: transposing dark remembrances of discipline and punishment into carefully articulated expressions of the joyous and luminous freedom circumscribed at the deepest levels of the human heart.
