We are bombarded with imagery that promotes a specific ideal of physical beauty. Of course, this is nothing new--for centuries, this idealized physique has been the central subject and inspiration for artists. Perhaps the difference is that this imagery is more pervasive today, and we are faced with a never-ending stream of opportunities to compare and judge ourselves relative to this mainstream ideal. In my work, I am attempting to broaden and comment on this flood of imagery, using traditional techniques of portrait and nude photography to explore the role of societal expectations in our personal body image.”




PURE is an art project that turns people into comic book characters thru body painting and storytelling.  

The crew often travels to collaborate on video, photography and/or fumetti art.
