My paintings are a critical response to the political and cultural issues crystallized through the social media anonymous human interactions. Beyond emoticons and slashing words, and through enigmatic appearances, my work puts a grotesque, loud, distorted, and caricatural emotional reaction on faces that never “face” each other.

Through the context of emails, texts, Instagram and Facebook posts, those imaginary faces hide behind bold, blunt, and aggressive tirades illustrating the fragmentation of human interactions. Jean Michel Basquiat, Franz Kline, and Robert Motherwell are my most significant influences when using percussive, and raw brushstrokes to build a snapshot of the emotional reactions to these exchanges.
