In order to convey my own concepts of masculinity and beauty, my work presents a dichotomy between intimidating physicality and pensive vulnerability.
This upends historical tropes, and speaks to the inner emotions and experiences conflicting and encompassing all humanity.
I hope that my own attempts to try to better understand these spiritual and philosophical concepts will permeate my figures to create work that bears the mark of our contemporary culture, speaks of the human condition, and encourages the same thoughts and questions in others.
