“My work forms this shield and the thinking that lies behind it. I use the human form and abstracts as the common denominators of my mental environment. The creation of my work is a way of addressing my attitudes, fears and my unwritten rules which have that have helped build my armor.”
Many people take great comfort from their fellow man, friends and family. There is a connection between them, and an environment of security. What if it is a place not of comfort but of control? In whatever form it takes, a sense of disorder and distrust is created. A shield needs to be constructed to ward against the unpredictability and lurking chaos of the outside world.
