My work is an exploration of the human body and physical identity. I exercise a clinical gaze as I render the figure because I am interested in material as truth and how the brain shapes the self. I am impressed equally by the beauty of the human form as well as the frailty and intricacies of the viscera underneath. My work is meant to interrupt the virtual self that we as contemporary humans project by confronting our own corporeal being. I want to invite the viewer to reflect on their anatomical composition without revulsion because I believe there is value in accepting the properties, complexities, and limits of the living body.
