My works are presented to examine the complex bond and power dynamic of the characters engaged in abusive dysfunctional relations, for I believe such spaces are so often disclosed and unrecognized. I use food and familiar everyday objects as symbols to create a space relating to domesticity and daily life. By using these symbols, I make portraits of the intimately/damagingly connected figures to focus on the ambivalent emotions surrounding love and endurance. This enables me to focus on the attachments where a need for survival, entrapment, and control is present. By recreating environments associated to abuse, my work seeks into the way desire, fear, care, idealization, punishment, and love coexist, and how and where such relations begin.
