Pants on a walk, a run in loose formation. An unsteady stack, a fraternity of men, bad posture, putting on a nice sweater. Working through multiple mediums, my work builds a narrative of masculinity both awkward and dilapidated. Through video, paintings and sculpture I use gesture, weight and clothing to explore figures both pathetic and heroic.
