Karisma

Some art seeks to please you — my work makes no such promise. I use my artwork to construct a window into modern society, giving viewers the chance to see with clear eyes both the darkness and the energy that flows through our world. My art is meant to challenge the viewer, to invite them to peer through the window I create and experience the conflicting emotions that may arise. Some viewers are upset by what they find in my work, while others are startled at the raw expression, even claiming that, like Paganini, I may have sold my soul to offer such a clear window into the world.

I avoid seeking influences for my work that exist outside my own mind; it’s my mind that brought me to first create art as a remedy for soothing the sting of depression. My art is the voice that I could find no ears for; I put my conflicts and thoughts into my work and let them speak for themselves. I keep my practice private, no longer using my words to explain my inner world, but letting my art speak for me instead.

I welcome viewers to enter that inner world through my art and allow themselves to be challenged by what they find — a mirror to our world that reminds us of that which we would often rather ignore.
