I am a figurative painter and storyteller. Using the vehicle of narrative, I investigate and attempt to form moral content through painting. I utilize texture, composition and symbolism in combination with history, myth and fantasy to develop a narrative of our world. I tell stories of devastated, isolated and broken figures that have ceased their struggle–accepted their nature as fragments, they lie still, dissolving into the earth with so many others, piling into mounds. I hope to add these stories to our culture, showing the depth of the human will and that we, in our continuing uphill struggle, can always become something better than what we are.

Hunter MFA

This spring, the Hunter College MFA Program in Studio Art will graduate 26 artists who completed their degree over the challenging months of the COVID-19 pandemic. These talented MFA Thesis Candidates are exhibiting their work in six group exhibitions at 205 Hudson, in addition to this online spotlight hosted by Hauser & Wirth. At time when the public audience for in-person exhibitions has been limited by the pandemic, we are excited to provide this digital platform to the emerging artists from Hunter College’s MFA Program in Studio Art.
