Get to know the artists from the upcoming [UNBOUND II] art show!
What type of work do you create as an artist? (Mediums, styles…)
I’ve been spending the last couple years bouncing back and forth between ink illustrations and acrylic painting. If I were to call my work anything it would be Contemporary Iconography. Throughout my childhood I spent a fair amount of time in Roman Catholic Churches. While not paying attention, I’d end up staring at the icons of saints painted on the ceilings. Today, I am very far from being a Catholic but I can’t help but think that there was a reason for me being there.
What was the main thing that you had to go through to get you to where you are at now as an artist?
Dealing with the ghosts of my past. Whether that be letting them go or allowing them to sit with me while I create.
What is the main thing that you try to achieve with your work?
It began as and still is a form of healing for myself. I’d also like for my work to be used as a reference for knowledge through semiotics.
What does being ‘unbound as an artist’ mean to you?
To create infinitely.
Where can we find your work online, and where can we see your work displayed next?
