I'll Take My Medication (acrylic, oil pen, and epoxy on cardboard lid assemblage)
We've all been there. This represents the crazy fights we endure for love and the desperate promises made to keep it together.
Narcissism (acrylic, oil pen, and epoxy on cardboard lid assemblage)
For this show I decided to play with the idea of love. Who wants to see a bunch of hearts and flowers anyway? Love is a loaded term and exploiting the light and dark side of it was way too tempting. So the one above is about self-absorption, a distorted kind of love. Narcissism.
I Just Wanna Talk (acrylic, oil pen, and epoxy on a cardboard lid assemblage)
These are pink elephants in overalls holding machine guns. Aren't they fun? They're psycho stalkers. Another distorted type of love.

I Love Robert: A Self Portrait (acrylic, pencil, epoxy, and celluloid doll on wood structure)
This is about me actually. Its a long story but when I was little I used to wish I was a little boy. So much that I would tell strangers my name was Robert. They believed me until they met my parents who refused to go along with my secret identity. So this piece is about loving the unconventional little Robert inside of me.
