“The Absence Of The Right Mind”

Artist’s Statement

His thoughts consumed him to the point where he became his fears; buried in the sound of his own mind. Within a dark space, a dramatically lit, seated man, subverts and shifts the stereotype of tough masculinity.  The focus of my work acknowledges male vulnerability. Concerned with issues of male mental health that ultimately leads to isolation, violence, depression and intrusive thoughts or suicide. My body of work hopes to encourage more adolescent men to reject the social norms of out-dated ideals regarding mental health and stability.
