Title Deficient
Date 2012-05
Description The work in Deficient is composed primarily of large-scale oil paintings, yielding from two bodies of work that have merged to become something greater than the sum of their individual scopes. The combined body of work is able to more clearly encapsulate the ideas I am interested in exploring. At the core of this work is a manifestation of the struggle between the individual and society. As human beings, we each experience marginalization, oppression, stigma, suffering or feelings of inadequacy in some form. Most often, we experience this based on external forces. In Deficient, I explore the interaction between these external forces and the individual. I believe it is an artificial quality in our society that imposes this sense of inadequacy, creating a sort of soft violence.
