Means of preservation combines the elements of sculpture, painting and drawing into a single observation of varying types of toxic relationships. The works have a performative element in the creation of the respective still life objects in each piece. I use a range of preservation techniques that are pushed to the max to provide an allegory of the damage that is done when people give up their boundaries for the sake of interpersonal relationships. I also have a strict observational study policy when it comes to my references, I don't create an image unless I have a clear image in my head or tangible object to look at.
Homegrown in Louisville, Kentucky. Recently graduated from Murray State University with a BFA in Studio Art and a minor in Legal Studies. I've spent most of my life studying various ceramic sculpture and painting techniques. I love a good challenge and to try out different processes. More recently I've been studying the business and legal aspects of the creative world.
