"In my paintings I play with the simulation of homo-erotic and cliché imagery. The figurative scenes vary from portraits to landscapes and are derived from glossy magazines and pornography, though their hypersexual or commercial aims are negated into images of unrequited desire. 

Before ever knowing real same-sex intimacy, I saw simulated images of it online. My eyes often wandered to the periphery of those images: the interior decorations, the beckoning landscapes in the paintings on the wall, the lush wallpapers. All these embellishments speak to a desire to reintegrate into nature, into our bodies, yet withhold us from doing exactly that."
