The philosopher Seneca said “loneliness is not being alone, but being empty” and that’s something I realized very young. Contrary to what most of us are taught, I believe being alone can be a good thing, and this notion is the basis for Solitude, which aims to explore feelings of lonesomeness in tandem with spiritual connections within the natural world.
Each of these works function as a self-portrait, manifested as an animal, an atmosphere, and visual/emotional phrase, and sometimes simply myself. In each work I explore a moment of profound experience, scenes of wonder that seek to savor quiet moments of unexpected encounters.
