Artist Statement

Through serial objects, Human Nature offers a collective observation into our social consciousness. These figures, seemingly displaced from an industrial or urban environment, use the language of color so commonly experienced in our daily lives. As the hues of night and day once influenced human physiology, color influences the figure in Human Nature. A glimpse into each object’s individuality is provided through the expressive application of hue. The color sensibility awakens our prior interaction with color, allowing those past experiences to find meaning. While appropriating a universal form as a canvas, viewers are called to dialog through their introspection with color, transcending the spoken word.
