artist statement: psychological interiors

 

A labyrinth of private emotions exists within each of us.  Shaped by personal experiences, their constant presence subconsciously influences how we interpret our world. 

 

The imagery of vacant interiors offers a safe setting where I can explore these quiet, submerged emotions without becoming too literal in my portrayals.  Although each drawing is created through searching my own perceptions, the resulting rooms are ambiguous enough to house the personal experiences of each viewer.   

 

These drawings are an exploration and release of hidden emotions that transcend words. Rather than offering definite explanations, these vacant rooms become the setting for an internal exploration that is both personal and universal
