Artist Statement

These works reference images of staunchly patriarchal institutions, be it the military, cultural conservatives, or the fanatically religious. By re-contextualizing the charged facial expressions often seen in these groups, and positioning individuals too close to one another, I subvert these institutions by implying a homoeroticism. The face of a screaming soldier can easily become the face of someone enjoying orgasm. I hope the viewer finds these works to be horrifying and hilarious.
