With my work I investigate crisis and the temporality of emergency. In my recent drawings and current sculpture I am drawing connections between militarism, sex and the clinical. In my paintings I portray bodies as they exist in a sort of symbiosis with their state of crisis. It is hard to separate the figures from their hospital beds or their badges of honor from their wounds. So I want to make work that exists to explore the ways in which contemporary emergencies exist and produce culture.
