"In the general body of my work, I explore the theme of danger and the way it is viewed in modern society. We live in such a safe world, with so many systems surrounding us and protecting us, that we often do not realize how abstract our lives are from any real danger. By using a clean and graphic quality to depict strong imagery, I strive to achieve a tension that mixes the clean and sanitized worldview we present to ourselves with raw, animalistic feeling of danger we try to eliminate.
"I try to create images that are both calmingly simple and yet greatly unnerving."
