This theme in my work is perhaps most true in regards to my latest series of paintings titled “Everything is Fine”. This particular set of work is different from other works that I have done in the past because the subject matter and inspiration for the series is based on my own life. I am someone who hides my problems and fears from others and no matter what inner demons I am facing I always answer with a resounding, “Everything is fine.” It’s not easy for me to share when I am hurt and need help, so the only way that I can express myself is through my paintings. This body of work came from my experience over the summer; specifically how so many aspects in my life seemed to fall apart. Home, friends, and family all seemed foreign to me. I couldn’t hold onto any sense of continuity. My world had suddenly become a stranger that I knew not of. The paintings are acrylic and they present a home morphing into an implausible house. Haunted by warped perspectives, rising water, and multiple gravity pulls, what was once a home has now become an object belonging to another realm that does not abide by the physics in our world.
