CLOSE FROM NONE is a durational film & performance piece created to explore the sensational effects of absence and longing. A series of movements are repeatedly performed while the emotional echo of the mind is being projected above. Similar to the ripples produced by a drop of water, each [e]motion produces a resonance that holds the ability to transcend space and time, continuing to return to us in one form or another, until eventually dissipating or transforming- if allowed to.

WOMB is an experiential 4 day performance art piece dealing with the concept of timeless pure form and its manipulation. When a point of nothingness and everything occurs and end becomes beginning. WOMB is a created space free from the expectation, judgement, and time of the outside world . Before we enter into the world, society has already begun to place expectation and formation of identity, through acts of ritualization. We are given a names, defined by gender colors and clothing for example - but what if we were to relive this space, living and creating in an absence of identity and time. What if we were given a moment to return to the WOMB? Returning to a state of purity. Only surviving and interacting with what was brought inside the womb through external factors. Film, photography, installation and paintings were produced from this experience, ending in the "birth" of a show.

This series of drawings was intended to examine the absence of identity through the deconstruction of image, line, and form, based off of pop culture and iconic silhouettes. The intent of the initial image wants us to see one thing and as a viewer we feel another through the absence and in refection we may see of ourselves. I wanted to alter the process by allowing the viewers reflection to occur between the figurative and abstract reference of the image.
