A Silly Little Life

Sometimes laughing is the only thing we can do in the face of an existence that is as equally absurd as it is painful; working mainly, though not exclusively, with drawing, painting and writing, my work explores the mundane, painful, absurdity of the every day. Life is a strange and stupid thing. The chances of you being alive right now in this exact moment, exactly as you are, are miniscule. Every rule we follow and everything we do was made up, by us, at some point in the history of humanity; your job, your taxes, the fact that we must wear clothes in public… you get the point. My practice acts as both a response and documentation of the simple and the silly.
