My work depicts a city that is growing at a rapid and uncontrollable rate. This city is a metaphor for my psychological space. It is full of potential yet intimidating enough to make one hesitate before crossing its harsh borders. Through my real world border crossings I have compiled stories and memories that I carry with me into my understanding of the world. By continuously traveling through psychological space, I am working to create parallels between the world as I see it and the world the way that I would like to see it. The world that I depict has come together through struggles to grasp the lessons of the past, while working toward clarity and understanding in the future.
