Artist Statement
Have you ever felt like you couldn’t get through to someone? Like communication lines were . . . not cut, but tangled in a mess? Or,
maybe you entered into a relationship without considering the reality of the future. Maybe you’ve felt trapped in a partnership. Like
you needed to escape but were being held back. Have you ever texted someone and hung on the ellipsis of their typing a response .
. . ​Or looked at yourself through a camera lens, or a screen, or someone else’s eyes and felt totally disconnected from that person
reflected back at you? This is what these drawings are trying to understand and evoke.
