the dark

My work is largely based on the exploration into undesirable aspects of human nature. Our necessity for security, the self-delusion required to function in public space, the inevitable lust for position and prominence and our final realization that the impact of these attributes far out weighs the fa├žade of benefits they offer.   

I represent this idea by using realist imagery, contrasting it with de-saturated tones and unconventional subjects. In this way the work becomes a reflection of  what I perceive to be our true nature, a highly idealist state which thrives on the misrepresentation of  itself to its surroundings.    

"Nothing is easier than self-deceit. For what each man wishes, that he also believes to be true."
