Artist Talks

Haven (2022) was exhibited in a solo exhibit at the Chester Art Centre from May 5-29, 2022. 

Artist Statement: Over the past two years, our changed world has caused a myriad of emotions about the importance of home and security, which has led me to explore the concept of haven. The dichotomy between the safety of our own environment and the threat of the unknown from without has contributed to increased levels of social anxiety. Whether based in reality, or perceived, the situation has challenged us to examine our thoughts and ourselves.
What makes us feel safe? Where do we take comfort? Are reduced social interactions a cause for celebration, or stress? What triggers our anxieties? The answers are different for all of us.
