I paint as a way to learn about myself; particularly, the things that I hide from my conscious self. Through this process, I capture what is most familiar to me: duality, contradiction and ambivalence.
My life is a ride on a pendulum, swinging between polar opposites. I simultaneously stand on two opposing sides, struggling together at the same moment. It is this moment of black and white, pleasure and pain, human and nature, that I know best and that I paint most.
