A Brief Inquiry Into the Social Interactions of an Insomniac.

Fundamentally, my works serve as an exploration of the relationship between painting and photography. Thematically, they inquire into the role urbanization plays in social fragmentation and the disintegration of human interactions. By depicting isolated figures roaming through empty and artificially-lit cityscapes, my hope is to highlight how—instead of forming intrapersonal relationships—metropolitan areas  can help foster the feeling of isolation; But also, my hope is to form a communal experience built upon our shared moments of isolation.
