Artist Statement:

As human beings, we love to classify our lives in terms of chapters, stories with beginnings and endings. In Jaded, my first solo show, I took a complicated, jagged time in my life and wrangled it into a narrative so that I could process it and triumph over it. I put my path from heartache to healing on paper so I could close the book on it.

That upheaval became the cocoon for the next stage of evolution: MORPH, a multimedia experience that explores life’s in-between moments. Where Jaded traced a progression from pain to peace, MORPH embraces a nonlinear view of growth. Creating Jaded led me to the conclusion that there can be no self without the full spectrum of emotion, and without self, there can be no art.

MORPH takes that conclusion one step further: art isn’t restricted to the endpoints, the finished products. It lives in the imperfect striving, the process itself. I once thought of Jaded as a clear-cut, one-way journey, but MORPH recontextualizes it as just one part of my transformation. This journey is ongoing and expansive—not necessarily to be broken down into a beginning, middle, and end, but simply to be lived.

After all, art exists not just in the butterfly, but in the metamorphosis.
