Working with painting and collage the artist’s work explores the liminal space between the conscious and unconscious worlds within a familiar yet cartoonish dimension. Space is flattened and stacked to show an overview of humanity at its most primal. At once, the characters driven solely by impulse are throwing fits of rage, crying, urinating or having sex. In this dreamlike realm, actions are instinctual and have no regard for societal standards.
