As a kid, I admired and was fascinated by the male characters in superhero comic books, movies and television. These fantasy influences subconsciously left a powerful moral residue that creeps into my perceptions and contributes to a feeling of discontent. An introvert by nature, the vast and constant array of seductive media imagery subtly encouraged voyeurism and social inhibition in life.
So, as an observer of human social behavior, the subject matter of my prints starts from an analysis of my own attitudes, beliefs, and actions, and what’s beyond my peer’s veil of social interactions. This series of work portrays issues of identification, attraction, inhibition, and desire that manifest themselves in an artificial social environment. They are a representation of the fantasy imagery of the subconscious, seamlessly and inseparably, co-existing with the reality of navigating life as “single”.
