Description

My prints and 2d mixed media works replicate states of wellness, health, and memory. Overfeed is a series of mixed media, wood relief prints composed of grotesque and comical human-like figures competing, mutating, and engulfing one another. Through the use of playful, stylized lines in association with the imagery, I aim to portray awkward moments of narcissism, immaturity and over indulgence. Images are somewhat absurd containing bones, ligaments and organs being eaten than spewed out of a wormlike colon. Through pleasure and amusement, the creatures lack control, and feverously devour themselves and everything within reach. This mix of comic stylization, humor and dark undertones directs the viewer to investigate further upon first glance.
