Artists Statement:

My work evolves around the belief of the stereotypical roles that females play, emotionally and physically, and the dementia that it can form. The figures are disturbed and disfigured. The edge of the surface becomes symbolic of the push and pull of the socially rigid regulations placed on the female unit. The pull to play the female part, for example, the mother, becomes a distorting element. From the sway of conforming or not, instability evolves and subsequently dementia follows. The corruption of the individual begins and this in turn is where my art making begins.
