My work explores and confronts the ways in which my anxiety manifests in my studio practice. My generalized anxiety disorder falls on the high end of the spectrum, and links can be made between my art and the fear/panic that drives it.
The bulk of my day-to-day anxieties stem from interpersonal interactions, and the social anxiety that is elicited as a result. Appropriately, my work tends to fall into the realm of the human figure. Facets of human interaction such as psychological control, romantic relationships, and identity are topics that I’ve dealt with during this semester. Formal aspects such as size, palette, and content are utilized to further the ideas represented on canvas.
