Art & Art History
When I am making work I am trying to be as honest as I can, sometimes to an uncomfortable degree. I explore truths of the human condition so that there may be humor, sarcasm, love, discomfort, and struggle present in the work. Language plays a huge role in my research and practice. The written and spoken word is vital to misunderstanding one another, it confuses and frustrates more than any other language. This thesis addresses the work in Love Notes: I Don't Care if it Kills You, and how it is concerned with communication and inequality in partnership.
