I have always used art to communicate the depth of emotion that grips the human experience, exposing hidden truths beneath the surface of our day-to-day interactions - a poet first and foremost who evolved into a Performance Artist in order to challenge myself artistically and work within and against physical and mental limitations.
In my performance art works I create an experience in which a direct and emotional response is felt by the public present. At other times my intention is to plant a specific curiosity or questioning within the mind of the viewer. I believe in using nothing more than my body, the space surrounding me and minimal objects and media if necessary.
Presently I am primarily exploring themes of male-vulnerability as strength and weakness through the lenses of culture, society and individual experience. Reoccurring themes in my work are religion, mythology, feminism, gender-roles, archetype, memory and human connection. Most recently much of the work has also taken a more political standpoint, as social commentary or protest art.
