Statement:

Painted presentations of visceral bacchanalia, hillbilly witchcraft and degenerate portraiture.

The works are glimpses into narratives, with a focus on the human figure, centered around characters belonging to their own social contexts, where fictitious chaos meets blatant references, satirical violence and humor while acting upon their animal (often maniacal and sexual) nature with exploited and often tragic exiguity.
