I took a journey into the underworld of human behavior from 2013-2018. My lens into the shadow aspects of humanity was the rise of fascism and the resulting war, violence, trauma, and genocide in 1930s and 40s Europe. For five years I studied intricately the human behaviors that weave through the cataclysm of a world in heaving conflict.
I painted, collaged, made films, and published a book about the ripple effects, triumphs, and tragedies of the dark world of war.
Above all else, I am a sort of alchemical anthropologist. Fascinated endlessly by human behavior and the transformational power that lies within our encounters. We always have a choice: we can lift one another up … or tear each other’s worlds apart.
