The mafu cage

virtual exhibitions of artists’ paintings, drawings, sculptureS & photography

Saturday, March 5, 2011


My work is about the varied journeys we take through life. It’s about growing up and living in a world that is broken.
These paintings are about trauma, fear and loneliness and the strength that it takes to survive and thrive.
They each contain the contrast of the untainted, young and innocent against a backdrop of a worn, ragged, and defiled world.
Support versus restraint, bondage versus freedom, and tension versus slack are all themes that I often visit.
My work deals with isolation, loneliness and longing teamed with a level of optimistic hope.
Issues of race and the division of wealth have arisen in my recent work.
This work deals with the idea of rigid boundaries, the hopeful breakdown of such restrictions,
as well as questions about the forces that orchestrate our behavior.
