Artist Statement

The image, Lost Ones, is from an ongoing series of mixed media pieces titled the same name. In this work, I’m exploring many ways to lose and to be lost. It began as a reaction to the sudden death of a good friend and surrogate brother. Giving a visual voice to our invisible pain, making the work was not only a way to grieve, but also served as a means to honor my lost friend, as well as his remaining family who are lost now without him.

Once I started working with this subject matter, however, I realized that there are many forms of loss aside from death – the loss of self, of relationships, of direction, of meaning… the list is long. I hope the work captures a range of feelings from nostalgia to uneasiness to a sense of absence – of something perceived, but existing just outside our grasp.
